“I don’t think he’s aggressive enough. When Ben Stokes decided to come around the wicket we saw things change. We didn’t see a lot of aggression from our captain and that’s why bowlers did not show the aggression,” he added.

Wallace was also highly critical of Holder’s continuing support for a struggling Shai Hope during the series.

“Obviously, when Jason decided to continually defend Hope, it's a massive statement to defend a man who hasn’t scored runs in Test match cricket for a long time. Yet, you have the extra batsman available to you and you did not play him,” Wallace said.

“You went down the road with Shai Hope and Shai Hope did not deliver for you, so that is a massive responsibility for a captain to take on board,” he added.

“Sometimes we need to be honest with ourselves about West Indies cricket. If West Indies cricket is to move forward, sometimes you have to make some harsh decisions. You have to drop your friend to bring in the man who will fight and perform for you. You cannot pick a friend and keep getting beat.”

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
