(Trinidad Guardian) Following the West Indies’ stunning 106-run victory on Thursday’s final day Holder and Law criticized the surface for the swiftness with which it deteriorated, the invariable bounce and the little assistance it offered to the faster bowlers.

In fact, Holder described some features of the pitch as “unacceptable” and urged more attention to be paid the standard of pitch preparation across the region.

“I don’t think it’s the best pitch for cricket if I’m being honest. I just think it deteriorated a little too fast for Test match cricket,” the all-rounder told media following the match.

“I felt as though it should have been able to hold together for a lot longer and the invariable bounce is not really acceptable here at this level. I think things worked out nicely in our favour but it could have been the other way around, had we probably lost the toss and been inserted.”

He continued: “But that’s cricket and I just hope we can continue to improve our surfaces not only here in Barbados but in the Caribbean. We just need to keep putting surfaces out there to improve cricket in the domestic competitions and then obviously improving on our Test match cricket.”
