Jason Holder, the West Indies captain, has kept his cards close to his chest when asked about the teams composition for the second Test against India, which starts at Sabina Park on Saturday. He said the pitch looked full of moisture on the eve of the Test, but would wait till the morning of the match before taking a final decision.We will take the final decision tomorrow morning, see how the pitch looks, he said. Yesterday it looked a bit green and this morning there was a lot of moisture.Despite the look of the pitch, Holder felt it was difficult to predict how it would behave.The last game we played here against Australia there was not this amount of grass on the pitch, he said. Previously there was grass, but the pitch still ends up being on the slower side. To be fair, as I said, probably its difficult really to predict how the pitch will play here in Jamaica. Going into this game tomorrow morning, I just need to take a final decision.West Indies went into the first Test in Antigua with only one genuine quick bowler, in Shannon Gabriel, with allrounders Holder and Carlos Brathwaite playing a holding role with their seam-up. Holder did not reveal if either Alzarri Joseph or Miguel Cummins would come into the team for the second Test, but had words of encouragement for Joseph, the uncapped 19-year-old fast bowler, when asked if he was ready for Test cricket.To be fair, I have never played against Alzarri, never seen him play cricket live, Holder said. But I have seen him play cricket on TV. And there is obviously a lot of talk going behind him. He has talent, he has the ability, he has pace. I support him fully. He has done what is done to get here.We just need to get behind him if he is making his debut tomorrow. If he plays in the near future, we just need to give him support. Support is all we can give. At this time, its important for him to back his skills and know what got him here. He got here by hard work, he got here by performances. He will just continue doing what he has been doing before and if given the opportunity, I wish him all the best.In a West Indies line-up that struggled in both innings of the first Test in Antigua, Jermaine Blackwood perhaps struggled the most, falling for ducks in both innings. Since scoring 92 against Sri Lanka in Galle last year, Blackwood has made 78 runs in nine Test innings at an average of 8.67. Holder did not specify if Blackwood would retain his place at Sabina Park, his home ground, but said the middle-order batsman had his full support.I havent picked the team as yet, Holder said. Jermaine has done well for us in the last few seasons. But I support him, I back him 100%. If he is given a chance to continue, I hope he will go and put out a good performance. He has got a Test century and has done well against some of the best bowling attacks. Everybody goes through a rough patch. Its just about him turning it around. Air Max 95 Cheap Sale .

PHILADELPHIA -- With a dunk contest, half court shots and Juju on that Beat dancing contest finished, Joel Embiid turned back toward Philadelphia 76ers fans at an open practice.Instead of scurrying off to the locker room, Embiid stuck around for selfies with fans sitting on all sides of the court, stretching mobiles high over his 7-foot-2 frame to squeeze as many fans as he could into each snapshot .Embiid even entertained in 1-on-1 games -- against little kids.Embiid has the joyous personality of a kid himself. Social media posts include him crushing on Rihanna or teasing an Australian-born teammate that hell get deported if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States. The 76ers posted a Vine last season of Embiid throwing down a between-the-legs dunk at warmups that blew up NBA-centric Twitter feeds and offered fans a fleeting look at the potential ahead.Philadelphias going to love him, coach Brett Brown said.The city has waited 29 months to love the 22-year-old Embiid for his impact on the court.The Sixers have stripped the bubble wrap off Embiid and the No. 3 overall pick of the 2014 draft is set to make his debut Wednesday night against Oklahoma City after two foot surgeries, countless days of rehab, gallons of Shirley Temples and inherited expectations that he is the savior for a woebegone franchise that has made a farce of competitive basketball.Embiid, who grew up playing soccer and volleyball and didnt play basketball until 2011, is no longer the raw project out of Kansas. Hes grown 3 inches and beefed up to about 275 pounds to better handle the daily grind of battling the NBAs biggest big men.Where I was three years ago, Im not even close to what I am right now, Embiid said. My game has gotten so much better. The past three years, if you watch the game tape, Im not the same guy.Embiid had a fantastic freshman season with the Jayhawks, averaging 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds. He blocked 72 shots to earn Big 12 defensive player of the year honors.He might have been the No. 1 overall pick in `14 -- a spot that went to Minnesotas Andrew Wiggins -- had he had not suffered from a balky back and needed surgery for a stress fracture in his right foot shortly before the draft. Embiid, who knew only his native Cameroon before college, failed to really adjust to life without daily organized basketball. His weight ballooned, and he was booted from a road trip because of a petulant attitude. Part of his weight gain was blamed on a junk food diet washed down with that mix of ginger ale and a splash of grenadine garnished with a maraschino cherry commonly known as a Shirley Temple .His personal life was rocked in October 2014 when his 13-year-old brother Arthur died in a car crash in Africa.Its been really hard, Embiid said.Embiid was expected to anchor the rebuild in 2015 for a Sixers organization that had scorched ttheir roster and abandoned a competitive season in hopes of gobbling lottery picks.dddddddddddd But a second surgery of the navicular bone on the right foot in August 2015 cost him his sophomore season.Embiid was devastated but handled his time off with greater seriousness in his workouts and a mission to return as a dominant center. The 76ers even shipped Embiid to a sports science facility and sports medicine hospital in Qatar to rehab.When I left college, I felt I wasnt ready for NBA life, Embiid said. But since Ive been in the league, the support Ive had around me from (former president) Sam Hinkie, the coaching staff, theyve just been on me. Thats what I usually need. When somebodys on me, I can usually do better.The Sixers played it safe this year and held Embiid out of summer league. Brown, in his fourth season, entered training camp with a cautious plan to limit Embiids minutes and games when the schedule is packed.Embiid, well, he left his training wheels in the dust.He averaged 11.6 points over all seven preseason games. Embiid played 20 minutes a game as the preseason ended and Brown said he would consider playing his starting center more often. Brown would ideally lessen Embiids load early and help him avoid the same fate of other centers who had careers curtailed by foot injuries, like Yao Ming and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.In the preseason, Embiid flashed some wow moments that had his teammates hooting and hollering on the bench. But Embiid sometimes tried too hard to be the showstopper and was a turnover machine.At times, he just reminds me of a yearling, trying to find his balance, Brown said. He wants to score. He wants to dominate. How about the passion he plays with? You cant coach that. And he has `it.So who plays with him? The Sixers have had more key players out with injuries under Brown than they have had competing for playing time.Ben Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick this year, is sidelined indefinitely with a broken bone in his right foot.

Jahlil Okafor, Philadelphias leading scorer and rebounder, is restricted as he recovers from surgery on his left knee.The Sixers went 10-72 last season and have won 27 games in Embiids two seasons on the bench.Having to sit on the bench and watch us lose almost every night has been hard, Embiid said.Embiid took note of the hype that happened across the street during one of his visits to the Philadelphia Eagles sideline. Carson Wentz went from unknown rookie to whipping fans into a Wentzamania frenzy with his quick start.I think its our turn, Embiid said. ' ' '
