England in West Indies: Joe Root says tourists 'desperately frustrated'

This is the second time that Holder is copping such a suspension

This is the second time that Holder is copping such a suspension

West Indies will be without their captain, Jason Holder, for the third Test of the series against England after the ICC suspended him.

Set just 14 runs to win, left-hander John Campbell (11 not out) smashed the 13th ball of the innings from veteran seamer Jimmy Anderson over the mid-wicket ropes, as West Indies emphatically notched their first series victory over a higher-ranked team in seven years.

"We posed some questions to them last night in the changing room, gave them 24 hours to have a think about it, and then an informal chat. Ultimately West Indies had that opportunity and exploited it".

The Windies have also reclaimed the Wisden Trophy, symbol of supremacy in Test series between the two teams, after nearly 10 years in England hands.

With fellow pace bowler Alzarri Joseph chipping in with two top-order wickets, including the prized scalp of captain Joe Root, the hosts bowled out England for 132 in the second innings.

There was no sympathy though for the young man in his time at the wicket as Stokes served up a lifting delivery which Joseph could only fend into the slip cordon for Burns to take the catch. However, the floodgates opened once Burns was sent back by Holder and the 35-run opening stand came to an end.

The first Test in Barbados was an equally convincing triumph by 381 runs inside four days, with Holder scoring an unbeaten 202 with the bat and taking two wickets.

Holder missed the tour due to a shoulder injury, but was kept apprised of things.

The grieving Joseph, displaying extraordinary emotional control, then put an exclamation mark on the session when he removed Denly's off-stump after the right-hander shouldered arms.

Joseph's commitment to the cause was also noted.

The final Test bowls off in St Lucia next Saturday.
