New Zealand Vs West Indies: Windies captain Holder suspended for Hamilton Test

West Indies skipper Jason Holder suspended for second Test

Hamilton, December 5: West Indies will be without captain Jason Holder for the second Test against New Zealand after he was suspended for maintaining a slow over-rate in the defeat in Wellington.

Batting collapses in each dig led to the Windies losing by an innings and 67 runs at Basin Reserve, despite Kraigg Brathwaite producing the match's top score with 115 from his two turns.

Colin de Grandhomme (105) and Tom Blundell (107) helped themselves to centuries as the Black Caps posted 520-9 declared in response to the tourists' 134 before skittling the Windies for 319 from 231-2.

An ICC statement confirmed: "The Windies were ruled to be three overs short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration."

It is Holder's second offence in a 12-month window, prompting his ban.

As well as missing the second Test, which begins in Hamilton on Saturday (December 9), Holder has been fined 60 per cent of his match fee. The rest of the Windies players have been docked 30 per cent.
