Holder was held responsible for his team’s slow over rate during the win in Antigua. West Indies wrapped up the three-match series with a second successive win – this time by 10 wickets – within three days in Antigua. They won the first Test in Barbados by 381 runs within four days.
After the match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Holder dedicated West Indies’ performance to the family of Alzarri Joseph, who played on despite the death of his mother on the third morning. Victory gave West Indies their first Test series win over England since 2009.
West Indies have fielded a four-man pace attack in each of the two Tests, with Roston Chase providing a spin option. In Antigua, Chase was only called upon to deliver eight overs out of 103.1 as England were twice dismantled by the quicks for totals of 187 and 132.
The third and final Test, in St Lucia, is due to begin next Saturday.
