Former West Indies Test captain, Jason Holder remains as the highest-ranked Caribbean bowler and world’s leading allrounder.
Holder and teenaged fast bowler, Jayden Seales were the only players making significant strides in the most recent International Cricket Council (ICC) Test player rankings recently.
Holder remained unmoved at ninth in the bowling rankings after finishing the second Test against Pakistan at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica with four wickets recently, but his scores of 26 and 47 saw him climb six places to 37 in the batting rankings.
The 29-year-old was good enough to score a half century in the first Test last month.
There was little movement for West Indies players in the ICC rankings after the three Test series. One of the matches was rained out.
The 19-year-old Seales who picked up three wickets in the first innings in the first Test, ended the series with 11 wickets. He jumped four spots to 54th in the bowling rankings.
Meanwhile, fast bowler Kemar Roach remained 11th in the rankings.
