Holder needs to show who is boss – legend Ambrose

first_img… believes Windies captain still the man for the jobWINDIES bowling legend Curtly Ambrose admits he has an issue with a lack of aggression from current captain Jason Holder but believes the Barbadian remains the best man for the job.The 27-year-old all-rounder has been in the post since 2015 but has come under heavy pressure in recent weeks, following a dismal performance for the team at ICC World Cup. Managing just a single win, which came against Pakistan, the regional team finished ninth out of 10 teams.While the outspoken Ambrose insisted that Holder needed to be more assertive in the post, the pace bowler pointed out that there was a lack of suitable replacements available.“When you look at the resources it is a very short list so what are your options? You have Jason Holder, you got Craig Brathwaite who is his deputy and who are the others who lead or have led before? Hetmyer led the Under-19s so maybe he is one to look at in the future once he can cement himself and get going but there is nobody really.The list is very short so we can’t just give a guy captaincy … we need to be very careful. I think Jason should just continue for now and then we see what happens,” Ambrose told Antiguan radio show Good Morning Jojo.“I think he has improved from when he started, so let’s be real, but my thing with Jason Holder is that I think he may not be aggressive enough as a leader. I think he is a little too laid back because when you’re captain you’re a leader and people should recognise right away that he’s the leader.“When you look at the West Indies team you’re not sure who the leader is, so Jason needs to, maybe, be more authoritative or just have some kind of presence so you know that he is the man in charge,” he said.
