South Africa skipper AB de Villiers has backed Jason Holder to succeed as West Indies captain.
De Villiers’ comments come after he scored the fastest 150 in ODI history during his side’s 257-run win over the West Indies in Sydney.
“He’s actually a really nice guy,” de Villiers said. “We’ve all been there. I’ve been there before in my career as well. Every captain goes through really tough games. It was a really tough game for him but we had a tough game in the last one at Melbourne. That’s part of the game.
“I know for sure that he’s mature enough to handle it. He’s got enough team-mates with experience around him to look after him and there’s no doubt that the West Indies will bounce back. They’re a classy unit and still a very dangerous team in this tournament.”
