Jason Holder, captain of the West Indies urged England Cricket Board to reciprocate the same gesture towards their team, who agreed to play the Test series during these troublesome times. Holder asked England to visit the island countries later this year as they are enduring severe financial problems and the visit would help them to a great deal. Holder feels significant authorities need to guarantee that smaller cricketing nations like them get the opportunity to play normal international cricket in a world that is tormented by the COVID-19. He believes in the present scenario just India, Australia and England have adequate funds to host games in a bio-secure bubble.
Holder while speaking with ESPN Cricinfo said, on the off chance that something doesn’t occur soon the world would see fewer international cricket matches being played by smaller nations since they can’t bear the cost of hosting a home series. West Indies have recently gone from hosting four to five series, down to two and three. He said it has been extremely hard to have anything else than that for the Caribbean.
Holder said West Indies earn profitable money only when England, Australia and India visit their country to play series. With Pakistan, the CWI breaks even while with other smaller countries, it is only a loss. Earlier in June West Indies arrived in England to play 3-match Test series in which they lost by 2-1.
