Jason Holder hails teammates as his Worcestershire stint ends

Jason Holder says he has loved his spell with Worcestershire and would definitely like to return to New Road for another stint at some stage in the future.

The West Indies star has received “the most warm and welcoming feeling I’ve ever had playing in any different team.”

Holder admits the five game spell has given him a new love for cricket and is now looking forward to returning with the West Indies to England for this summer’s Test series after staging the ICC T20 World Cup.

He said: “It has been unbelievable, a hell of an experience. I think the boys have been outstanding. I said to them they have given me a new love for cricket.

“It has been one of those stints where you get everything you want to achieve out of it.

“It is unfortunate we didn’t win a game and I was really looking forward to singing the team song but each and every game has shown glimpses that this team and something special about it.

“The boys are a hell of a bunch. I’ve enjoyed every single moment and I’ll definitely be back.

“I’ve been amazed about how tight one group can be and everyone plays for the right reasons.

“Everyone plays for the team. It is one big family, everyone is behind each other, no man is left alone and it is just one of those attitudes and environments you want to be in.

“You wake up and look forward every single morning to going in and being around these boys and that is something I haven’t had for a very long time.

“I thank Worcestershire for having me and hopefully I can be back and actually play a game at New Road.”
