Cricket West Indies (CW) has praised West Indies fast bowling great, Michael Holding for his best Pundit Award 2020 at the Sports Journalists’ Association (SJA) event. Sky Sports won the Network of the Year category.

CWI President, Ricky Skerritt praised Holding for his passion and bravery.

He said, “Michael Holding has always made West Indians and his many international fans proud of him, both on and off the cricket field. His latest journalism award recognized his sincerity, passion, and bravery in the face of adversity and conflict. These are some of the same principles that represent the best of West Indies cricket.”

“CWI celebrates with Mikey Holding, for continuing to make us all proud to be West Indians,” he added.

The Sports Pundit award, which is decided by an SJA Members’ vote, was given to Holding for his powerful testimony about racial injustice in the aftermath of the death of American George Floyd, on Sky Cricket’s coverage of England against West Indies in July 2020.
