West Indies captain Jason Holder already had one of the toughest jobs at the World Cup but this week faces the hardest assignment for any sportsman — waiting to see if other results will send his team into the quarter-finals.
The 23-year-old fast bowling all-rounder was a shock selection as captain for the tournament, if anything in the chaos that has been West Indies cricket for the last few years can still be described as a surprise.
Despite his efforts, the twice former champions have been consistent only in their inconsistency in their first five Pool B matches.
A meek defeat to Ireland in their opener was followed by a thrashing of Pakistan and then a victory over Zimbabwe on the back of Chris Gayle`s double century.
The momentum from those victories was lost, however, in a 257-run humbling at the hands of South Africa and a four-wicket defeat to India in Perth last Friday.
The loss to India would have been worse had Holder, batting at number nine, not scored a career best 57 runs to give the team some sort of total to defend.
“We just sort of unlace things, try to work out stuff. Obviously we didn`t bat well in (Perth) so we just need to address a few areas.
“But there are ways that I will go about doing it, but we just need to be honest with ourselves and we just didn`t bat well enough in these last two games, and the batsmen just need to be accountable for putting runs on the board.”
