West Indies captain Jason Holder heaped more pain on the English team with a scintillating unbeaten 202 on Day 3 of the 1st Test at Kensington Oval today.
Holder’s innings came off 229 balls and included 23 fours and eight sixes.
He shared an unbroken 295-run partnership with wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich who finished not-out on 116. Dowrich’s innings came off 224 balls and he struck 11 fours and one six.
This is the only third occasion that anyone batting at number eight or lower has made a double hundred in Test cricket. The stand between Holder and Dowrich is also the highest undefeated 7th wicket partnership in Test history.
West Indies have given England a monumental target of 628 runs to win the game over the next two days.
