The collection will mark the resumption of cricket after the game was halted internationally in March within the wake of coronavirus pandemic.
West Indies had famously overwhelmed England throughout the earlier collection between the 2 sides that was performed within the Carribbean Islands. A draw within the collection could be sufficient for them to retain the Wisden Trophy.
Holder mentioned it will a aggressive collection and it will not be smart to take them flippantly regardless of England being a powerhouse on residence soil.
“Anyone would be silly to write us off. It has happened in the past and we have made people eat their words. I’m confident we will do really well. I think this is going to be a really good series,” Holder instructed Nasser Hussain throughout an interview as per Daily Mail.
Three West Indies gamers, particularly Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer and Keemo Paul, had earlier opted in opposition to touring to UK for the collection trying on the implications put ahead by the COVID-19 disaster.
Holder said that their determination to take action have to be revered as it could have a really troublesome selection for them to make.
“Certainly from my perspective it won’t be. Everyone had a decision to make and a lot of our players have kids. I know that was the biggest challenge: leaving their kids at home to potentially be exposed to bringing the virus back home,” he mentioned.
“I do wish the three players all the best and I know they will be at home supporting us. We are all one big family and we just have to do what we need to do here.”
