England vs West Indies : Jermaine Blackwood the unsung hero for the West Indies

They got there largely thanks to Jermaine Blackwood’s 95.Blackwood might not have played had fellow batsmen Darren Bravo and Shimron Hetmyer decided to tour rather than opting out of a campaign taking place against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.

Holder said of Blackwood: “He had an outstanding first-class competition — his case to get back in the team was pretty strong.

“He’s not a slouch at this level either, he has done well for us and I hope he can kick on.
