It was groundhog day again for the Caribbean tourists who capitulated to an innings and 212-run loss well inside three days in Hobart after being sent back in and bowled out for 148 off just 36.3 overs in the second innings.

But Holder who has the unenviable task of facing the media to explain the latest West Indies loss, was putting on a brave face against the continuing Windies underachievement.
"I wouldn't say it's a step backwards, obviously in the past we've shown that we can compete," Holder told reporters.
