Jason Holder has been included in West Indies squad as replacement of Obed McCoy in T20 world cup 2021 – Latest Cricket News

The West Indies team has included all-rounder Jason Holder in the team as a replacement for Obed McCoy. McCoy has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup 2021 due to injury in the match played against England. Holder’s performance was stellar in the second leg of IPL 2021 recently played on UAE soil and he showed amazing performance with both the ball and the bat. West Indies have not been able to open their winning account in the two matches played so far.

The ICC has allowed Holder to be included in the team. Holder was already in the UAE as a traveling reserve and will be available for selection in the next match against Bangladesh. The arrival of Holder will strengthen the West Indies team, as he can contribute significantly with the ball as well as with the bat. Holder, playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021, took a total of 16 wickets in 8 matches and also scored 85 runs while batting in the lower order. The World Cup has not started well for the defending champions West Indies and the team has faced defeat in both the matches played so far.

The Caribbean team had suffered a 6-wicket defeat at the hands of England in their first match of the tournament and the entire team was all out after scoring just 55 runs. At the same time, in the second match against South Africa, West Indies had to face defeat by 8 wickets. The West Indies batting order, adorned with T20 specialist batsmen, has remained silent so far. Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Captain Pollard’s bats have not yet scored as expected. After suffering two consecutive defeats, the team’s chances of reaching the semi-finals are also very less.
