West Indies players took to social media to brighten the spirits of regional fans and also reassure them of their commitment amidst the challenges posed by the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.

Test captain Jason Holder told followers on popular social network, Instagram, that it was important to stay “patient and safe”, as cricket across the globe has ground to a halt.

I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s all stay patient and safe. I miss the game so much and cannot wait to put on these colours once more

The post was accompanied by a close-up photo of him batting in the training nets in West Indies gear with his eyes fixed firmly on the ball.

Holder, the 28-year-old six-footer, is the leading all-rounder in Test cricket having occupied the number spot for over a year.

West Indies’ last Test was against Afghanistan in India late last year and they will be hopeful of resuming the longest format in England this summer as they aim to retain the Wisden Trophy as part of the ICC World Test Championship.

All-rounder Rovman Powell, a white-ball specialist, also offered messages of goodwill to fans on Instagram.
