Difficult question on how to fix our batting: Jason Holder

KINGSTON: With the team led by Jason Holder getting an unwanted distinction to record their poorest average in history Cricket test While granting a 0-2 series loss to India, Captain Holder was forced to admit that there are many problems in the Windies batting department.

Only one West Indies Batsman managed to score fifty in the two-game series, with Holder's batting unit recording his poorest average (14.95) in any test series.

Obviously disappointed, we don't play a full game of cricket in both games. We need to raise the scores and fight in those difficult periods. It's a difficult question about how to fix the batting. It is something individual.

We need to take possession of our performances, Holder said speaking in the post-game presentation after Windies lost the second test by 257 races in the Sabina Park Monday.

The hosts collected only 327 runs in two innings at Kingston, and produced an even more meager total of 322 runs in the initial match.

With a series of disappointments to leave behind, the Windies captain admitted that it will not be easy to find solutions to the problems affecting the team. I don't think it's a quick fix, he said while talking at the presser after the game.

The situation in which we are Caribbean ... we are not really spoiled by the options as to the hitters coming.

We have to put things in their place and make sure we keep developing players and make sure that the players are doing the right thing to succeed, he emphasized.

The all-rounder pointed out that a lot of emphasis needs to be put on: the cricket West Indies play; on the franchise; and at the first-class cricket level -- as it was the platform where young players will be nurtured.

"We need players with experience and scenario-based experience. And when they come to the Cricket test level, it becomes a little bit easier," said Holder.

West Indies ' winless record against India, in Tests, now stretches back to 17 years.

West Indies has one more Test this year against Afghanistan starting November 27 in Dehradun.

Holder believes that problems should also be addressed immediately. There is so much to do. We have the opportunity to put things in their place: one or two more camps, mainly for our batters, and also fast bowlers, and holistically, developing our cricket players.

"We have the franchise system here in the Caribbean but we need some structural things put in place in terms for players to develop," he added.
