Former West Indies fast bowler Sir Andy Roberts and Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves believe cricket West Indies selection panel blundered in not selecting Jason Holder for the T20 World Cup squad.

Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Darren Bravo and Akeal Hosein were named to the reserves.

Speaking on Mason and Guest, Roberts says he’s shocked Holder wasn’t selected as one of the first choice players.

Dr. Gonsalves says Holder would be more valuable to the team than Ravi Rampaul and Oshane Thomas.

Roberts and Gonsalves were adding their voice to that of Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley who recently questioned publicly the non selection of Holder in the 15 man squad.
