Cricket West Indies President criticizes ICC for suspending Jason Holder

The ICC's decision to suspend Jason Holder for the third Test against England did not go well with several former players, and now Cricket West Indies President has lashed out at the governing body.

The Windies skipper was suspended and fined 40 percent of his match fee for slow over-rate during the second Test in Antigua.

Here's more on the same.

The decision was taken by the ICC despite the Test match getting over within three days.

This move has garnered widespread criticism from the cricket fraternity.

For Windies, Holder has been one of the chief architects of this series victory, with a dead-rubber Test to be played in St Lucia.

Windies cricket chief Dave Cameron has raised questions about the ICC's move.

Cameron questions punitive action of the ICC

"We will, of course, abide by the ICC ruling. What a shame if the series is remembered not for the sparkling play of the reinvigorated West Indies players but for a crippling decision made by a rule that ought to be modified," said Cameron.
