Sir Clive Hubert Lloyd CBE AO, former West Indies cricket captain, is backing Jason Holder to remain as captain for the current Windies team.
Clive Lloyd, one of the most destructive batsmen of all time and one of the most successful and respected captains of West Indies, believes that Holder continues to be the best man for the job.
“Who you gonna put in front of Jason? Call, call a name,” he begged while speaking in an interview.
“Jason Holder is doing a good job,” he added.
He said Jason doesn’t have a consistent side, and the players under his charge must work harder and think more of their game.
He emphasized that fielding must improve, or “else we are gonna be behind the eight ball again.”
Holder has won only 11 of 37 test matches while losing his 20th and 21st games in New Zealand, but Lloyd, who appointed Holder back in 2015, is against the notion of removing the Barbadian from the helm.
The 76-year-old Lloyd played 32 Tests from 1981 to the end of his career, scoring 2,342 runs at 61.63 with six hundreds.
He led the Windies team in 74 of the 110 Tests of his career, won 36, and lost 12. He was victorious in 14 of the 18 series, lost two, and drew two.
Meanwhile, regional cricket commentator Fazeer Mohammed has also opposed the idea of a wholesale firing of the coach, technical team, or sacking of players.
The ace commentator argued that there are bigger issues to the situation than the changing of the guard.
