Controversies and West Indies cricket are like the left and the right hand of same person.
Recently that relation had new colors when Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels and Carlos Brathwaite recently declined to be in the contracts with West Indies Cricket Board any more.
Any player can take that kind of decision but that always creates problem in the rest of the team. It’s a common scenario in West Indies Cricket.
All those three players were the members of the Test squad which finally won their first game in 19 months and first on foreign soil in four years. They beat Pakistan by five wickets in the third and final Test in Sharjah on Thursday.
Now, with so many pressures in head, the decision from those star players has created more problems for the young captain Jason Holder.
But, West Indies Test captain Jason Holder doesn’t want to care for those controversies and he wants to move on with the team.
In a recent interview he said, “As I’ve said about all the negative things around West Indies cricket, those things are basically beyond my control.”
He added, “I can’t control who signs contracts, I can’t control who’s here with me. All I can control is my destiny on the cricket field when I step over that line, and that goes for everybody in the dressing room.”
Their decision immediately raised question marks about their futures in team. Holder thinks that it is up to each player to take responsibility for their performances and their careers.
Jason Holder lastly said, “Us players we have to be responsible for our own individual actions [and] take our own personal pride on to the cricket field and control cricket.”
