Holder among Wisden Five
London – Former Test captain Jason Holder has been named as one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers Of The Year, further bolstering an already mushrooming international profile and confirming his status as one of the world’s elite players.
Cricket’s most respected and authoritative publication announced its prestigious list yesterday, with Englishmen Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley and Darren Stevens, along with Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan, joining Holder as the five most influential players.
In making the announcement, Wisden said the 29-year-old Holder “was at the helm when West Indies toured England and played a central role in his side’s only win over England” during last year’s historic three-Test tour at the height of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
While his returns from five Tests last year were modest, Holder was rewarded for his leadership role in the ground-breaking biosecure Test series against England, which marked the resumption of international cricket following a lockdown due to the virus. (CMC)
