West Indies skipper Jason Holder has described his side's stunning four-wicket win over England in the opening Test of the three-match series in Southampton as 'one of the best victories' of the Caribbean side as a group.
"One of our best victories. Yesterday (Day-4) was the best day I had in Test cricket. All the bowlers toiled hard yesterday, and it was a hard-fought day of Test cricket. I don't think any team knew. We had been sat at home doing nothing. We had time to prepare, but you never know. John took a blow today, but hopefully he will come through. We knew what was at stake yesterday evening," said Holder during post-match presentation ceremony.
Holder praised the "massive, massive heart" of Shannon Gabriel following the tourists' on Sunday.
Fast bowler Gabriel was named man-of-the-match after taking combined figures of nine wickets for 137 runs as international cricket returned from lockdown.
