Tall and lanky at 6′ 7”, Jason Holder is the man chosen to lead Windies out of the never-ending mire. He’s still at the helm, his latest task being that of securing his side a place in the 2019 World Cup, let alone do well in that.
Holder won the prestigious Lord Gavron Award in 2009, which is given to a Barbados Under-19 cricketer who’s been outstanding on the playing field. A right-arm medium-fast bowler hailing from Barbados, Holder has grown as learnt as a captain and player on the go, exhibiting an ever-improving temperament and progress in technical and tactical awareness. He is a also a handy batsman, lower down the order.
