Cricket news - Jason Holder - The leader who takes the lead

After pre-series talk of an England whitewash, the double hundred was Holder saying, "Not on my watch"

From the moment a young Jason holder and began to wave at the famous Wanderers Cricket Club in Barbados, he was singled out.

Excellent as a special Cricket talent, of course, but also more than others of his age, the owner of the integrity and values apart signed him. He impressed the people. Whenever someone came in contact with him, they came to respect him as he is. Holder is not Intrusive, despite his talent, still argumentative. He is down-to-earth, polite. He has an inner steel and will to tell the people what he expected of them, but it is not the confrontation with him. These were the attributes that got him noticed by important people in West Indian Cricket circles in the morning.

He had the talent, it was clear, had to bracket nut according to yet another window, at her family home, was broken by a cricket ball, a canoe from his bat. In an interview a few years ago, she recalls her son saying it was his fault, he was trying to keep the ball, but it just bounce off, held his bat too far. Given you knew the values she had instilled in them, know in him, that he was telling the truth. She remained angry at him for the broken glass.

Only a few years later, holder, the West Indies captain at 23, first as ODI leader in 2014, and then in Test cricket shortly. He had only a handful of games at the top level under his belt, not naive, exactly, but certainly green under the gills. It was not so much a hospital, as a last-ditch shot in the dark by the West Indies Cricket board in an attempt to resolve the disastrous situation in which they had played their role in creating.

The team had just quit the tour of India because of a pay dispute, the deterioration of the low point in the relations between the Board and the players for months. It led to many months of discord, the effects are still being felt-and established stars such as Dwayne Bravo and Darren Sammy left the national set-up more or less for good, preferring the T20 franchise-scene instead.

The discord is still there. The furore, the claims before this series against England on the appointment of Richard Pybus as coach, with a few that he hand picked by the Cricket West Indies " the President without due process, was another example. Although Darren Bravo has returned to the team after two-year absence, because, you guessed it, a disagreement with the Board, there are others that are not involved yet.

To get holder just with the things. He has been asking for in the trust, as a leader, more of his team, giving them more direction, as his term of office. He is more articulate when speaking with the press, to speak more sure of herself, willing to be honest about the problems, the plagues, cricket in the West Indies. He confesses, in the beginning it was difficult to know how he was going to lead or how to deal with certain situations. Now, he has a better idea.

The results, however, were mixed. West Indies are eighth in the Test world rankings, and had the qualification for the world Cup through the qualification. The recent disasters in India and Bangladesh. Bracket has a young, talented squad at his disposal, but the consistency has been lacking.

His form was far from being contradictory, however. He was always rated highly, the impressive former England coach Peter Moores in the year 2010, as Lancashire, who is Moore's coaching was at the time, toured Barbados in front of the county season. As a result of his early promise, West Indies a lot of time and effort in the mounting of the development and in the last 18 months particularly, you will reap its fruits. He has been named in the foremost fast bowling all-rounder in the world, the right, the in the ICC Test team of last year.

Since the start in the year 2017, the owner averages 35 with the bat and a shade over 20 with the ball. His bowling has thought of a cutting edge that was lacking when he played for the first time, Test cricket and was a medium-pacer, it could hold on tight. Be set-up by Joe Root in the first innings of here dismiss him, away, away, away, was pretty brilliant bowling. Not a lot of set-up the England captain.

And then his double-hundred was there today. Prior to this Test, the holder asked, his bat to strengthen it, as the bowling attack has had in the last year and, like all good leaders, he put his money where his mouth was. At the beginning of the day, at seven, he went almost six hours later, with 202, in his name, his third Test hundred. England, probably from the beginning of the day anyway, but holder and his good friend Shane Dowrich, piled up in a row unbeaten partnership of 295.

It was grinding, it was brutal - owner on five sixes in his first one hundred and eight in all - it was relentless, it was class. He smacked Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid from the attack in the first session, this meant that Root had to turn to Ben Stokes again and again. After lunch, and holder and Dowrich batting more overs in James Anderson's 36-year-old legs. After the tea, the guide, the last 600 and set England took the highest total, the West Indies have anyone ever. After the pre-series gloss over the speech of England, the owner says, "Not on my watch."

The owner of the innings, the third highest score by a number eight in the Test history, with the first Test hundred by a Bajan West Indies captain in Barbados Disillusioned since Sir Garfield, 1971. Holder also hit more sixes than any other West Indian against England, passing Viv Richards record. It is the second highest test score ever by a West Indies captain against England, Brian Lara's 400 not out in 2004 about him. This was not a performance in the company of those Sobers, Lara and Richards.

Where the owner of lands in the pantheon of great West Indian cricketers, it remains to be seen, but at 27 he has plenty of time to cement his legacy. On the basis of what he has done in the game so far, and how he did it, only a few bets were against him, sealing his place at the top of the table Jason holder is always a very special cricketer, in fact.
