Holder

Holder to miss third Test after being handed suspension

West Indies will be without skipper Jason Holder for the third Test.

He was suspended for the final Test by the ICC in relation to his team's slow over-rate during the victory in Antigua last week.

Kraigg Brathwaite will lead the side and all-rounder Keemo Paul was roped in to replace Holder.

Holder was magnificent for the Windies in both the Tests.

The pitch could cater to fast bowling in St Lucia and Drakes lauded the senior pacers.

"The objective is to make sure we have pace. Kemar Roach has really started to mature as a bowler and Shannon Gabriel has the X factor for us. I'm really excited to be part of this squad where we continue to put fear in opposition hearts."

Our take: One expects young Windies to keep growing

West Indies need to be lauded for their spirited show against England. The team had suffered in the tour of India and Bangladesh, but showed character across the two matches. It's a young side and under Holder, one expects them to keep growing.
