Summary

  • DUBLIN, Ireland (CMC) — West Indies’ captain Jason Holder has full confidence that his team’s four-pronged pace attack will deliver the goods at the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup.
  • With the regional side set to play their first match of the World Cup against Pakistan at Trent Bridge on May 31, Holder is counting on fast bowlers Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas to create havoc against their opponents.
  • It’s probably an area of concern in the past where we’ve struggled to get some wickets in the middle period and having a guy like Shannon who obviously has the pace and experience, it’s good to have him in there to come and shake up things in the middle for us,” Holder said.
  • “We’ll be relying heavily on him to make an impact and then we have a young guy like Oshane Thomas who has been around and who obviously has a lot of pace as well, who can definitely make an impact in the middle.”
  • Holder said the invaluable experience of Roach, who is playing in his third World Cup, was also crucial, as was the energy which Cottrell brings to the table.
