The International Cricket Council made the decision to ban Holder for one game following his side's slow over rate in the Antigua Test, which the Windies won by 10 wickets to seal the three-match series, and reclaim the Wisden Trophy.

A team hammers the opposition & plays great Test cricket yet the Captain gets a ban for Slow over rate.

Holder claimed 4-32 to help bowl England out for 132 in Antigua on Saturday before West Indies sealed victory with two days to spare.

But unfortunately, when everything was panning out for the home team, ICC charged the Windies captain with a one-match suspension which evoked a debate among cricket fans and experts. Michael Vaughan labelled the decision as "bonkers" and Shane Warne called it "ridiculous" given the second Test finished inside three days.

India batsman Ambati Rayudu said on Sunday that the second-ranked ODI team has never had an issue with setting targets in limited-overs cricket.

"He is having a good showing in the West Indies first-class championship at the moment", chief selector Courtney Browne said.

West Indies are 2-0 up in the three-Test series and will be looking ahead to a whitewash. "The panel also takes this opportunity to congratulate the team and the support staff for the series victory and wish them all the best for the third and final match of the series".

Jason Holder will miss the third and final Test of the series.

The Windies, who also thrashed England by 381 runs in the first Test, have sparked hopes of an upturn in form with their excellent performances against a side ranked five places higher than them at third in the Test rankings.
