Holder: Ireland not to be under-estimated

The West Indies will not be under-estimating the Ireland team when they meet each at the Saxton Oval on Monday, in what will be both teams first match at the World Cup which is being co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Windies captain Jason Holder has insisted that his team his are confident they will come out on top, but they are weary of the threat the Irish team poses.

West Indies cricket has gone through some turmoil these past few months, with player strikes and poor performances on the field overshadowing their usually flamboyant style on the cricket field.

Holder said: “They’re not to be under-estimated, but having said that, we’re very confident. Obviously you go through tough times in your cricket and you just move on and take whatever you can from it.

“We’re starting a new campaign and I think it’s important that we all put our minds on it and just go out and play some good cricket for West Indies. We’ll start from ball one and go out and play some hard, aggressive cricket.”

Ireland do have a knack of upsetting Test playing nations at World Cup in 2007 they shocked Pakistan and in 2011, in India, they dismantled England.
