West Indies’ newly appointed Test captain has hailed his predecessor for doing a “superb job”

Kraigg Brathwaite, West Indies’ newly appointed full-time Test captain, has said it’s a “privilege” to take over from Jason Holder.

Holder, who became captain in 2015, led West Indies in 37 Tests before opting out of the recent tour of Bangladesh amid concerns over Covid-19. Brathwaite led a depleted West Indies side to an unexpected 2-0 Test series win, following which CWI gave him the captaincy full-time, with lead selector Roger Harper contending that he “was able to motivate his players to play to a very high level and create the culture we are looking to establish where the team showed a collective determination to fight and a real hunger for success.”
