    Windies captain Jason Holder admits the form of middle order batsman Nicholas Pooran has a bit of fresh air, despite a few underwhelming performances by the team at the ICC World Cup so far.

    The 23-year-old was one of the few bright sparks for the regional team in a crushing defeat against England last week.  In fact, Pooran scored his maiden half-century, with an impressive 63 from 78 balls, in an eight-wicket defeat.  His responsible partnership with Shimron Hetmyer, who scored 39 from 48, was a steadying factor for the Caribbean team who at one point seemed destined to make less than the 212 they eventually managed.

    “Pooran has been really good.  I am pleased with his progress so far.  He has shown a lot of maturity, which is really good for a young player,” Holder said.

    “He has got quite a few shots in his locker as well and that is really got to see from a young talent.  I just want him to continue the way that he has been going,” he added.

    “If he were marking himself extremely hard, I am sure he would like a 100.  So, let’s hope tomorrow he steps up and carries it deeper.”

    In three matches so far Pooran has scored 137 runs.  The West Indies will take on Bangladesh on Monday at Taunton County Ground.
