Jason Holder, who stands 6 ft 7 in tall, is one of the young cricketers in the current West Indian team who has shown potential.
He was born in Barbados on November 5, 1991. He’s a right-arm medium fast bowler who can even bat at the bottom of the order.
He is also the captain of the West Indies Test and One-Day International teams.
In 2009, he received the Lord Gavron Medal, which is given to an outstanding player for the Barbados Under-19 team.
He played a vital role in the West Indies’ Under-19 World Cup campaign in New Zealand in 2010. He got off to a good start in the competition, taking two wickets in the first Group D match against Pakistan.
His best result came against England in the quarter-finals, when West Indies needed it the most.
Holder dismissed the English team with figures of 5-19 after the West Indies were dismissed for 166 runs. With 13 wickets, he ended the season as his team’s top wicket-taker in the competition.
Holder made his One-Day International debut against Australia in Perth on February 1, 2013. West Indies were bowled out for 70 runs, which was a poor result. By dismissing Aaron Finch, Holder earned his first international wicket.
In January 2014, he made his T20I debut against the West Indies, and he ended up with two wickets.
In June 2014, he made his Test debut against New Zealand, after strong results in the shorter format. In a lost cause, he took two wickets and made a fifty.
Rise to Glory
In July 2013, he made his mark with 4-13 against Pakistan. In the third match of the series, he scored 19 runs in nine balls to guarantee a draw.
He scored his first test century in April 2015, securing a draw against England.
In a low-scoring match against India on June 2, 2017, he took his first 5-wicket haul in ODIs.
Holder was purchased by the Chennai Super Kings at the 2013 IPL auction. Sunrisers Hyderabad purchased him for USD 125,000 a year later. In his IPL career, he has taken 5 wickets and scored 38 runs.
