MELBOURNE---Jason Holder s
disappointment was clearly evi-
dent as he slowly walked from
the field after being dismissed
late yesterday in the second Test
For almost two days the West
Indies looked a real challenger to
Australia in the second Test, and
for a few hours on the fourth day
it seemed that a draw was pos-
That all ended when captain
Holder was dismissed by Mitchell
Marsh for 68 to break up a defiant
100-run partnership with Denesh
Australia claimed a 177-run
victory shortly after to clinch the
Frank Worrell Trophy but, after
a disastrous showing in its lone
tour match and a crushing innings
and 212-run loss in the first Test,
the West Indies did at least man-
age to win back some respect.
"It hurts you know. You re
playing for your country and you
lose games. It s not a nice feeling,
especially with all we ve been
through," Holder said. "It s just
disappointing, but again I thought
we showed a lot of improvement
from the first Test match."
After Australia declared its first
innings on 551-3, Darren Bravo
guided the West Indies from 91-
6 at the end of the second day
to a gutsy reply of 271. It was
enough to force Australia to bat
again rather than enforce the fol-
low-on, as the bowlers needed
Australia declared again on 179-
3 before the start of day four and
the West Indies produced its best
performance of the series to deny
the hosts a quick win.
"It s just a situation where we
just need to believe. We took a
lot more belief when we went to
bat," Holder said. "You could see
guys really try and apply them-
selves. Once we continue to do
that we ll show better signs in
the third Test match."
Bowling is still clearly an issue,
with the West Indies taking just
ten wickets from three innings
over the two Tests.
"We ve just got to look at how
we bowl," Holder said. "We didn t
control the game the way we d
like. Our bowlers really need to
take stock of what they re doing
and understand a little bit more
the situations in the game."
Holder identified Darren
Bravo s innings of 81 in the first
innings as one of the highlights
of the second test, form he hopes
will be carry on into the third
Test in Sydney starting Sunday.
"Darren Bravo has been excep-
tional so far. He s led our batting
and is showing signs of maturity,"
he said. "Darren has a lot of talent
and a lot of eyes have always been
on Darren for the way he plays.
It s just good to see he s matur-
ing." (SEE PAGES 54, 56)

DURBAN---Dale Steyn won t bowl
for the rest of South Africa s first
test against England and is a doubt
for the second match after he expe-
rienced more discomfort in his right
shoulder in the warmup on Tuesday.
The top-ranked Test bowler will
need more Tests on what South Africa
team manager Mohammed Moosajee
called a right shoulder "spasm" to
decide if he is fit to play in the second
test in Cape Town starting on Satur-
The doubts over Steyn s fitness
added to the problems for the Proteas,
who trailed England by 261 runs ahead
of the fourth day of the series opener
at Kingsmead and were facing a strug-
gle to save the game.
Steyn didn t take to the field on Tues-
day morning and in his absence England
continued to build a big lead and was
well-placed to take a series lead to Cape
On Monday, team manager Moosajee
attributed Steyn s shoulder problem to
the quick bowler s heavy workload on
the first day at Kingsmead following a
six-week layoff for a groin injury.
"There was no tears to the muscles
or the tendons or the ligaments so we re
treating it more as a shoulder spasm,"
Steyn slumped over holding his bowl-
ing arm early in England s second
innings and left the field for treatment.
He returned later and tried to bowl
again, and again pulled up injured.

ISLAMABAD---Pakistan Cricket Board
chairman Shaharyar Khan has refused
to accept Azhar Ali s resignation as
ODI captain over the inclusion of for-
mer spot-fixer Mohammad Amir in
the training camp.
Khan met with Ali in Lahore on Tues-
day and after the meeting the PCB said
in a statement that "the chairman didn t
accept" Ali s resignation, who agreed to
continue as captain.
Last week, Ali and opening batsman
Mohammad Hafeez stayed away from
the camp after Amir was included, but
after meeting with Khan both agreed to
join the camp.
Amir s five-year ban for spot-fixing
during a test match in 2010 ended in
September and the 23-year-old left-
arm fast bowler is in contention for next
month s limited-overs tour of New
PCB chairman turns
down Ali's resignation

lose games. It's not a nice feeling, especially with all we've
been through."--- Jason Holder
