West Indies captain Jason Holder praised Carlos Braithwaite saying that his remarkable 100 in the World Cup was so near to led the team to victory. However, the West Indies squad wasn’t able to defend their score and instead the New Zealand team scumbled to victory. The West Indies had a great opening session where Chris Gayle scored massive runs for the team however the team went to 162 runs for seven wickets while chasing a total of 292 runs to beat the Black Caps at the Old Trafford. Carlos 101 runs off 82 balls, decorated his maiden century however they weren’t able to score the runs with just one wicket standing.
His work ethic is really good
New Zealand won the match against West Indies by only five runs and they effectively ended the West Indies hopes of entering in the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup as well. Carlos has been previously known for hitting four massive sixes in an over of Ben Stokes to see the team win the dramatic 2016 World Twenty20 final over England in the Kolkata.
Appreciating the play of Carlos, Holder said that his work ethic is very good and he is not the one to shy away from his responsibilities. “His work ethic is really good. He’s not one to shy away from his responsibilities. And he puts a really good effort into his preparation. The knock he played today is not surprising to me.I guess everybody could sit here and agree that we’d love to see that a little bit more often. But that’s the general feeling within the entire group. I think as a team we just need to be a lot more consistent,” says Holder.
I am thankful for my performance
Carlos on the other hand, had different things to say about his bitter-sweet innings. He said that all his hard work is finally turning to great innings for him. “All the hard work I’ve been putting in, it’s finally good that it comes to fruition. I’m obviously devastated not to get over the line, but also giving thanks for the performance. Even getting the team into the position we got into before I got out,” says Brathwaite.
