The Caribbean team dismantled Pakistan in their opening win at Trent Bridge on Friday. Led by Oshane Thomas, the main player finished with 4-27, while captain Jason Holder had five wickets.

“We just want to be aggressive with whoever we’re playing against,” Holder told a press conference. “If you aren’t picking up wickets then you are never going to contain teams.

“We just want to be aggressive with whoever we’re playing against,” Holder told a news conference. “If you aren’t picking up wickets then you are never going to contain teams.

“We go through the players on the opposition and just try to formulate our plans.

“We get a lot of short balls in the nets as well, so it’s good to see a lot of short balls transcending from the nets onto the field of play.”

Holder said he was particularly impressed with the contribution of all-rounder teammate Russell, playing his first ODI since July last year and who returned to the squad after a revamp of their selection policy.
