Holder now top Test all-rounder

Bridgetown, Barbados, January 27 - (www.bcacricket.org) - West Indies captain Jason Holder has emulated his fellow Barbadian Sir Garfield Sobers in achieving the top spot among all-rounders in the ICC Test rankings.

Holder’s rise comes two days after becoming only the third man batting at No. 8 or lower to score a Test double-hundred - 202 not out against England in the first Test at Kensington Oval, which West Indies won by 381 runs with a day to spare.

Holder, 27, broke several records in helping spur West Indies to their third-biggest victory in terms of runs at Kensington. All of this helped him become the first West Indian to be ranked No. 1 among Test all-rounders since Sobers held the top spot in March 1974 in the retrospective rankings.

Holder leapfrogged Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan and India's Ravindra Jadeja and now has 440 points - 25 more than the second-placed Shakib. Holder also made gains on the batting front, jumping from 58th to a career-best 33rd.

Wicket-keeper/batsman Shane Dowrich, who made an unbeaten 116 and put on an unbroken 295-run stand with Holder - the third highest for the seventh wicket in Test cricket - also moved to a career-best 47th from 61st among batsmen.

Two other Barbadians - fast bowler Kemar Roach and off-spinning all-rounder Roston Chase, who also played key roles in West Indies' memorable win over England, rose to 20th and 41st respectively among bowlers.

Roach took five for 17 in the first innings, while Chase grabbed a career-best eight for 60 in the second.
