Holder to make West Indies debut

Chemar Holder will make his debut for the West Indies Under-19 team tonight

Barbadian fast bowler Chemar Holder has replaced the injured Obed McCoy in the West Indies team at the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh.

Holder, 17, arrived in Bangladesh ahead of the quarter-final match against Pakistan, to be played on Monday (Sunday night Caribbean Time).

McCoy sustained a laceration of the webbing between his thumb and first finger on his left hand earlier on tour and is therefore unable to play.

Holder was impressive during the NAGICO Super50 tournament last month, where he made his List A debut for the Combined Campuses & Colleges Marooners.

He took a match-winning 5-22 against the Windward Islands Volcanoes to earn the Man-of-the-Match award.


Shimron Hetmyer (Captain), Keemo Paul (Vice Captain), Kacey Carty, Shahid Crooks, Michael Frew, Jyd Goolie, Chemar Holder, Tevin Imlach, Ryan John, Alzarri Joseph, Kirstan Kallicharan, Gidron Pope, Odean Smith, Shamar Springer, Emmanuel Stewart.

    This should serve as a lesson to all young sports persons. Stay fit and stay in the game. You never know when your chance will come.
    Just last week he was in the nets @ the COE at Kensington Oval.
