Jason Omar Holder
5th November 1991
Jason Holder is a man of many talents. Apart from bowling fast-medium, and batting lower down the order, he captains the West Indies team in all formats of the game. He was first appointed when he was only 23-years-old. He captained the Windies in the 2015 World Cup, and was part of the squad that won the 2016 World T20, though he didn't play a game.
Holder is known for his gritty batting and his consistent bowling. His batting came to the fore when he scored his first hundred in Tests in 2015 against England. Coming in to bat at 189/6 in the fourth innings of the Test, he batted for over three hours, scoring 103* and helping Windies secure an unlikely draw.
Early in 2019, captaining the Windies in a Test match vs England at Barbados, he scored a memorable double hundred at his hometown, the first double hundred by a Windies player since 2014. As a bowler, he is only the second Windies bowler to get 10+ wickets in a Test match since 2010. In ODIs, he is amongst five Windies players to score 1000 runs and pick up 100 wickets.
Jason Holder was one of eight players that Barbados Tridents retained from their winning 2019 championship squad. He will continue to lead the team as they strive to defend their CPL title in 2020.
