Holder's X1 struggles on day 2 of intra-squad match

Jason Holder's X1 reached 120-5 in their first innings when bad light stopped play on a rain-affected second day of the West Indians intra-squad warm-up match at Old Trafford in Manchester, England.

Joshua da Silva was 60 not out for Holder's when the day's play was halted and eventually called off because of bad light.

Sunil Ambris has the next best score of 25. 

Jamaica's Jermaine Blackwood made 1, compatriot Nkrumah Bonner failed to scored and Holder got 5 from 13 deliveries. 

Chemar Holder has taken 2-15 so far, while another Jamaican pair Oshane Thomas and Marquino Mindley have taken a
wicket each for Brathwaite's X1. 

Rain has continued to affect the match with the start of play delayed by 3 hours.

Monday's opening day was completely washed out by rain.

Unlike the first match, this second warm-up game is being treated as an official first class match.
West Indies will play England at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton in the first test starting on July 8.

The next two test matches will be held at the Emirates Old Trafford starting on July 16 and 24 respectively.
