‘Don’t panic’ *

Holder calls for calm following heavy defeat

West Indies captain Jason Holder


West Indies captain Jason Holder has urged his team not to panic following their heavy innings defeat inside four days to New Zealand in the first Test, yesterday.

The Windies started the fourth day on 214 for two but lost eight wickets in a half-a-day, to be bowled out for 319, losing by an innings and 67 runs.

“What I have to say in the dressing room is ‘don't panic'. We have to stay focused on the job and believe that we can win when we go to Hamilton,” Holder said in reference to the second Test. West Indies travel to Hamilton today to prepare for the second Test at Seddon Park.
