Former cricketer Vivian Richards gives blessing to appointment of Holder as Test captain

West Indies Cricket legend and former captain, Sir Vivian Richards, has given his blessing to the controversial appointment of 23-year-old Barbadian Jason Holder as Test captain, arguing that his youth could be a boon.

Richards believes that Holder, who joined the team as a bowler, but showed remarkable improvement with the bat, also commands the respect of the team, which will be a crucial factor in his success.

Holder replaces Trinidadian Denesh Ramdin following the Cricket Board’s decision.
