WI vs ENG 5th T20I: West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder was overjoyed after his five-wicket haul helped his team win the fifth and final T20I against England at the Kensington Oval on Monday.

“A classic finish wasn’t the best start, but I just wanted to stay in the game. Did not work well yesterday, but was totally opposite tonight. I was a bit disappointed with the no-ball. I look to be disciplined, but then to get the next five balls perfectly was nice. Was just pumped up, I love to play at Kensington Oval, we’ve the best fans in the world, credit to the English fans for coming in as well. A lot of hard work, can improve on my death bowling, add some variations. But I’m gaining confidence and so is the captain in me,” said Holder after the game.
“Bowling the last over tonight just added to it, I’m happy that I was given the responsibility. I am feeling good about my role in the team, I pass on my experience, pride myself as a complete team player, just want to put my hand up, even when I’m not bowling, I can share a few things with the younger lot. A lot of thanks to the management and the staff. Big thumbs-up to the ECB and the English guys, they aren’t just great players, but they’re good and humble people,” he added.

Only James Vince got England off to a good start with the bat. After scoring 55 runs off 35 balls as England chased 180. Sam Billings also contributed with a 41-run innings. But it was insufficient as the West Indies continued to take wickets at regular intervals.

Holder and Hosein were the series’ standout performers, ensuring that the hosts won the series.
