West Indies are right now positioned eighth in the MRF Tires ICC Test group rankings, yet Holder is certain his group is sufficient to complete 'fourth or fifth' in the focuses table of the debut ICC World Test Championship. The Caribbean side were outstanding against Afghanistan in Lucknow and verified a major triumph under three days.

"I think before the finish of the Test Championship, I don't see it being unimaginable for us to be fourth or fifth on the planet," Holder said during the post-coordinate question and answer session. "That would be a noteworthy accomplishment in a two-year time frame.

"We are very brave arrangement coming up: we have England, at that point South Africa going to the Caribbean, at that point, we have New Zealand - all great cricket sides. In any case, I don't believe it's past us to beat them. We've quite recently got the opportunity to ensure we continue building and creating. When we do that, we can contend with any side on the planet. A reasonable objective in two years is to be positioned three or four on the planet."

Despite the fact that this Test was not a piece of the World Test Championship module, Holder feels the experience has helped them show signs of improvement. He was especially intrigued by the spinners, who assumed an indispensable job in winning. The superstar was Rahkeem Cornwall, who got a ten-wicket pull in just his subsequent Test.

"We expected the spinners to assume an overwhelming job in this game, however with the new ball we most likely anticipated somewhat more from the quick bowlers," clarified Holder. "As the ball got more seasoned, I felt it did somewhat more. Their openers played well and essentially observed off the new ball.
