Holder suspended for third Test

Despite finishing the Test within three days, Windies captain Jason Holder has been suspended for slow over-rate during their win in the second Test.

Holder scored hundred
Windies have already wrapped up the series with a thumping 10-wicket win in the second Test. But they are set to miss their skipper in the final Test due to slow over-rate.  They won the first Test in Barbados by 381 runs within four days.

The Caribbeans are yet to announce the captain for the final Test. Vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite is likely to lead the side. The right-handed batsman led against Bangladesh in the two Tests on their tour of Bangladesh last year where Holder was absent due to injury.

Holder has been in sensational form in the ongoing series. He scored a double-hundred in the first Test and was also elected the man of the match. The skipper dedicated the glorious win in the second Test to the family of Alzarri Joseph.

Joseph lost his mother while he was playing the second Test. He played on despite the death of this mother on the third morning. Both sides also gave a standing ovation to Joseph when he came out to bat.

The third Test between Windies and South Africa will start from February 9 at St Lucia.
