West Indies Captain Jason Holder has been knocked out from the top of the all-rounder rankings following the first Test debacle against West Indies recently in New Zealand.

Holder, 29, endured a lean time with both the bat and ball as the regional team suffered in a humiliating defeat at Seddon Park in less than four days and has slipped to second in the all-rounder charts and 44th in the batting rankings-losing three spots.

Holder also suffered in the bowler’s rankings, dropping two spots to seventh.

He remained one of the three Caribbean players in the top 20 with Kemar Roach slipping to 16th and Shannon Gabriel moving up to 19th.

Both Roach and Holder finished with three wickets apiece during the New Zealand innings.

Holder managed 25 not out in the first innings and eight as West Indies were bundled out for 138 and 247, to trail 1-0 behind in the two Test series.

Meanwhile Jermaine Blackwood, climbed 17 places to 41st following his superb 104 in the second innings-his second Test century.
