Holder urges Brathwaite to repeat World Cup ton heroics
AFP, Manchester :
West Indies captain Jason Holder urged Carlos Brathwaite to "bring it together more often" after his remarkable hundred so nearly led to a stunning World Cup victory over New Zealand.
The West Indies were down and out at 164-7, chasing a target of 292 to beat the Black Caps at Old Trafford.
Thanks to Brathwaite's blistering 101 of 82 balls - his maiden one-day international century - however, they got to within a six of a win with just one wicket standing.
But Brathwaite, trying to hit what would have been his sixth six of a remarkable innings, fell to paceman Jimmy Neesham as Trent Boult took a good catch just inside the long-on boundary off the last ball of the penultimate over.
