Holder improves bowler rankings

West Indies Captain Jason Holder has moved up one place in the latest ICC Test bowling rankings, which were recently released.

Holder, 26, is now 12th, inching closer to a personal milestone of a top-10 spot on the chart, which was updated following England’s dramatic victory over India in the First Test at Edgbaston recently.

He has enjoyed upward movement in the ICC rankings, especially following his 16-wicket haul in the two-Test series against Bangladesh last month.

For the first time in his career, his bowling average now stands at under 30 — 29.95 — while he averages 30 with the bat from 34 Tests.

Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel remains the highest-ranked West Indies bowler at 11th, while seamer Kemar Roach lies 20th.

Holder is also fifth in the all-rounders rankings
