Jason Holder: “It is still my ambition to be the No. 1 all-rounder in the world but I think I would feel a lot better being the No.1 all-rounder in the world and the West Indies ranking at No. 2 or No. 3 in the overall ICC rankings.” (GP)
LONDON – West Indies captain Jason Holder and fellow fast bowler Kemar Roach have made significant strides in the latest ICC Test rankings.
Holder, who last week became the top-ranked all-rounder in the world, jumped four spots in the bowlers rankings this time around and is now in a career-best sixth place.
The 27-year-old has also now reached 778 rating points, which marks the highest by a West Indies bowler since legendary speedster Courtney Walsh retired 18 years ago.
Holder followed up his unbeaten double century in the first Test in Barbados with an outstanding performance with the ball in the second innings of the second Test in Antigua last weekend, which the Windies won emphatically by ten wickets.
He finished with four wickets while Roach, who scytheed through the middle and lower order, also claimed four to end with an eight-wicket match haul. (CMC)
