West Indies captain Jason Holder has retained his No1 ranking, according to an ICC release recently.

The 27-year-old Barbadian topped the all-rounder charts in Tests back in January following his stunning double hundred in the first Test against England in Bridgetown, Barbados, that propelled the home side to a massive 381-run victory.

Holder also picked up two wickets in that match, to move up to two places to the top position.

Holder is the highest-ranked West Indian in the bowling charts at number eight, while fellow Barbadian fast bowler Kemar Roach has also retained his 11th place ranking.

Speedster Shannon Gabriel is the other West Indies bowler in the top 20 at number 12.

Australian pacer Pat Cummings sits on the top bowling rankings.

In the batting rankings, West Indies opener Kraigg Braithwaite is the highest-ranked Caribbean player at 36th with Holder popping up at 37th.

India Captain Virat Kholi tops the charts with Australian Steve Smith having climbed to second spot.
