Territorial Mindset Needs To Change In West Indies Cricket, Says Jason Holder

For the first time since the 50-over World Cup's establishment in 1975, the two-time defending champions will not participate. A day after the West Indies squad was eliminated from the ODI World Cup in India, all-rounder Jason Holder made an appeal to cricket players to reject "territorial" thinking and unite "as a region" for the benefit of the game.

Scotland completed the chase with more than six overs remaining after West Indies scored 181 runs. There is no such thing as a territorial or personal aspect to cricket. One of the best all-round players in the world said during the post-game news conference here on Saturday that we need to come together as a nation. On Saturday, Holder took a wicket while tallying a score of 45.

Six associations, including Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, the Leeward Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, and the Windward Islands, make up Cricket West Indies (CWI), the organisation that oversees the team.

What Happened during the Match?

Jason Holder,  31-year-old cricketer, stated that his squad was well aware of the significance of the match against Scotland and had a great opportunity to win, but ultimately fell short. They were aware of the stakes and yet had a chance to win. They had a great chance to play Scotland and defeat them, but we failed to take advantage of it.

he added, it's encouraging to see some of the younger men get a chance on the main stage. No temporary band-aid solution, according to Holder, will benefit West Indies cricket; instead, fundamental reforms are required.

As stated by Jason Holder,

Jason Holder stated that the West Indies team had experienced a "fluctuation" in performance during the previous few years, indicating that he foresaw this day coming. We must also consider the levels below (age group and domestic cricket) and work hard to make those levels better. As a result, these young men (senior level) will arrive with a solid foundation. We must all raise our hands and be counted individually.

When discussing the future of Test cricket, Jason Holder states that "lesser countries will play less if something is not done. Smaller nations won't play as much international cricket if something doesn't change soon since we can't afford it. From four or five-match series, we now only have two or three, according to Jason Holder

The West Indies were limited to just two venues—Manchester and Southampton—during the eight-week tour, which Jason Holder believes is the wisest course of action for West Indies Cricket. Both groups kept put. Holder believes that England will soon travel to the Caribbean in return for their goodwill.
