The second Test in the three-match series gets underway in St Lucia on Thursday, live on Sky Sports Cricket (via the red button) from 2.55pm.
Cricket fans seemed to ignore the boycott, as there was an average of 600 people each day at the Oval, a typical Test crowd in recent years.
Holder said the crowd, which included schoolchildren on the first three days of the match, acted as the 12th man urging the team on. It really started with the partnership that Shane and I had, and then Devendra came in and played an outstanding knock. "Credit must go to every individual who put an effort in", an elated captain Jason Holder said afterwards.

Wicket-keeper Shane Dowrich scored an unbeaten century to give the Windies team a first big innings total of 414/8, after Sri Lanka were all out for 185 runs in the first innings.
"We had a lot of time to sit back and reflect on how the past year ended", Holder said.

It was the first time since the drawn 1985 fixture against New Zealand in Georgetown, Guyana that the West Indies had declared in both innings of a Test match. Kusal Mendis, starting the day on an unbeaten 94, was dismissed for 102 off 210 deliveries.
