HARARE, Zimbabwe – Windies captain Jason Holder spoke to CWI Media following his Man-of-the-Match performance in the win over Papua New Guinea at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournament.

The towering six-footer stood tall with a career-best 99 not out which hauled the Windies out of trouble at 58-4 in the 12th over.

They reached the victory target of 201-4, with 42 balls to spare and recorded their second consecutive win in Group A at Old Hararians Club.

The 26-year-old shared a match-winning, fifth-wicket stand of 143 with Shai Hope, who braved injury to score a stylish 49 not out.

Hope sustained the injury to his right leg when he was struck by a full toss while batting in the first match against United Arab Emirates.

Holder maintained his excellent allround form, as this knock followed up his five-wicket haul in the first round victory over United Arab Emirates at the same venue on Tuesday.

Earlier in the match the victory was set-up by seamer Carlos Brathwaite who had career-best figures of 10-2-27-5 as the spirited PNG side were bowled out for 200 off 42.4 overs.

PNG were at one stage 151-4 in the 34th over, when Brathwaite triggered a collapse as five wickets fell for 12 runs. He was well supported by left-arm spinner Nikita Miller with 2-25 off six overs.

The Windies next match is against Ireland on Saturday at Harare Sports Club.  First ball is 9:30am (3:30am Eastern Caribbean Time/2:30am Jamaica Time).
