Under pressure West Indies captain Jason Holder has hinted at changes to come ahead of Friday’s second test against England at Headingley. The team will be looking to rebound from a innings a 209 run defeat inside three days at Edgbaston.
Holder says the players have been working with the team’s sports psychologist, Steve Sylvester, as they try to bounce back in the face of the poor perforamnce and scathing criticism which followed their humiliating defeat in the first test.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Chris Woakes, who has not played international cricket since June after struggling with a side strain, will return to the England team, replacing fellow pace bowler Toby Roland-Jones, who took four wickets in Edgbaston.
West Indies have not won a test in England since 2000 and have not won a series away from home against a team other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since 1995.
