MOM: Jason Holder

  • Time for the glory moment. Jason Holder has the trophy in his hands and is posing along with his teammates for photographs. They have big smiles on their faces. The hosts will be really happy with the series win. Their bowling was highly impressive and on every occasion, they bowled out Bangladesh. The away side need to improve drastically. The tour is not done yet as the shorter formats are to follow, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is to be precise. They are a potent team in white-ball cricket and they will be eager to prove that. Join us for the 1st ODI in Guyana on 22nd July at 0930 Local (1330 GMT) to catch all the action. Till then, cheers!

  • The away side did fight back in the second innings with the ball but they were already a long way behind in the game. The skipper, Shakib Al Hasan weaved his magic with the ball, taking a 6-fer, giving a glimmer of hope to his side. Still, it was an uphill task for the tourists as they needed to chase 335. There was no change in the script as the Windies once again worked their way with the ball, not giving Bangladesh any sniff. Jason Holder hogged the limelight, by taking 11 wickets in the match to shut the door completely on the visitors.
  • In reply, Bangladesh were insipid with the bat. There were no substantial contributions as they kept on losing wickets in a heap. Jason Holder took a fifer to cause the downfall while Shannon Gabriel and the debutant, Keemo Paul took two apiece. That meant that the home side ended up gaining a big lead of 205. The Windies skipper chose not to enforce the follow-on though.
  • After being put into bat, the hosts got off to a cautious start. Kraigg Brathwaite was the one who held fort and stroked a fine ton. He got good support from Shimron Hetmyer, who missed his maiden century by only 16 runs. For the visitors, Mehidy Hasan was the star as he took a five-wicket haul and was supported well by Abu Jayed who picked 3 wickets.
  • The Windies have beaten Bangladesh black and blue to take the series 2-0. It has been a really good performance from them and they are the deserved winners. After setting a big target of 335 on a two-paced track, their bowlers were on the money once again. Jason Holder was the standout performer, as he made the ball talk at will and took a 6-fer, taking 11 wickets overall in the game. There was no resistance apart from the 59-run stand between Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim.

    OUT! Can't get more adjacent than that! Holder bags a 10-fer to his name and he has a big smile on his face. He has been belligerent all through and has got the rewards as well. He hurls in a fuller length ball around off and it seams back in sharply to go past the defense of Islam to ping him on the back pad. As soon as Jason rises up in his appeal, the dreaded finger of the umpire goes up.

    OUT! Knocks him over! Holder produces a beauty to get the better of his opposite number, for the second time in the game. He bowls a length ball outside off and the ball swings in like a banana.
