Former Australian spinner Shane Warne has slammed the International Cricket Council for its decision to suspended the West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, for the third Test vs England because of his team’s slow over-rate during the second match in Antigua.
Warne also urged Holder to appeal against this ban before the third Test in St Lucia.
West Indies have an unassailable 2-nil lead in the series after crushing victories in the first two matches but Holder, the world’s top-ranked test all-rounder, will sit out the last game in St Lucia starting on Saturday.
The 27-year-old was named man of the match for his innings of 202 not out and two wickets in the 381-run win over England in the first test in Barbados.
The Legendary Aussie Spinner questioned ICC’s common sense in banning Holder.
On his twitter account Warne posted, ‘The test didn’t go 3 days – can you please appeal this @JaseHolder98 ! What a ridiculous decision – where’s the common sense here ? Ps- Congrats on a wonderful series win too. International cricket needs a strong Windies team and hopefully, this is just the start.’
