Richards backs Holder as Test captain
Viv Richards has supported Jason Holder's promotion to the West Indies Test captaincy, saying the all-rounder had the ability and was not too young for the job.
Richards' endorsement came days after Brian Lara also approved of the new West Indies captain, who replaced Denesh Ramdin in the job.
Holder, is West Indies' second youngest Test captain, and has led the ODI side in 12 matches
Holder's first series in charge of West Indies' Test team will be the tour of Sri Lanka, where they play two Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is in October and November.
