Holder's ban rule needs changing - Windies chief
Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron has slammed the decision to ban skipper Jason Holder from the third Test.
Holder will play no part in the series finale against England after receiving a one-match sanction for Windies' slow over-rate during their 10-wicket second-Test victory.
That gave the hosts the series after they annihilated the Three Lions in Barbados, but the win was tainted by the news that their inspirational captain will not lead them in St Lucia.
While recognising that rules must be obeyed, Cameron feels that the current laws need to be amended.
"We will of course abide by the ruling, but have to wonder if such punitive action at a pivotal stage of the series is good for cricket," he said.
"What a shame if the series is remembered not for the sparkling play of the reinvigorated West Indies players, but for a crippling decision made by a rule that ought to be modified."
