Agency :
West Indies captain Jason Holder said "my Test is far from over" after he rocked England with a career-best six-wicket haul on the second day of the series opener at Southampton on Thursday.
Holder, the world's top-ranked all-rounder, took 6-42 as England were dismissed for 204 to surpass his previous Test-best of 6-59 against Bangladesh at Kingston two years ago.
It was the sixth time in his last 10 Tests that the towering paceman had taken five or more wickets in an innings, with Thursday's return including the prize scalp of rival all-rounder and stand-in England captain Ben Stokes.
West Indies have not won a Test series in England since 1988 but they hold the Wisden Trophy after a 2-1 success in the Caribbean last year-when Holder made an unbeaten double century in an opening win at his Barbados home ground.
"I have done a good job so far but my Test is far from over," Holder told reporters after bad light forced an early close with West Indies 57-1, a deficit of 147 runs.
"I have a massive contribution to make with the bat," the 28-year-old added.
Holder had been struggling with an ankle injury in the lead-up to the series-the first Test campaign since lockdown-but still troubled England with his accuracy and late movement.
He also led from the front.
West Indies had twice dropped Stokes, second in the Test all-rounder rankings, before Holder had him caught behind for 43, the top score of the innings, to end a stand of 67 with Jos Buttler (35).
"It was a big wicket to get," said Holder. "We put down two chances and he was looking to make us pay.
"His partnership with Jos was starting to blossom into something that could really hurt us.
"But I was getting just enough movement to keep him at bay, keep him playing and eventually got the edge."
Holder added he had a particular reason for wanting to do well in England this time.
"I really wanted to get on the honours board at Lord's," Holder said.
"We were scheduled to play there but then due to Covid-19 they shuffled it around," he added of a series where the bio-secure grounds of the Ageas Bowl and Old Trafford, the venue for the last two Tests, are being used instead.
