West Indies captain Jason Holder has achieved his career-best bowling position, jumping nine places to 13 following his maiden 10-wicket haul, which led West Indies to a 166-run win inside three days in the recent second Test against Bangladesh in Jamaica.

Holder, 26, has also broken into the top five in the ICC all-rounders rankings.

He claimed five for 44 and six for 59 to finish with match figures of 11 for 103, in the two-match series.

Holder was judged to be the Man-of-the-Match Series.

The performance saw him overtake England’s Ben Stokes and assumed fifth spot in the all-rounders rankings.

Also, for the first time since his debut four years ago, Holder’s bowling average now lies under 30 at 29.95.

Holder batted three times in the series and scored 33 not out, 1 and 33, following on from the series against Sri Lanka where he averaged nearly 40. He has taken 81 wickets from 34 Tests. Holder’s teammate, fast bowler Shannon Gabriel, also moved up 11 places in the bowlers’ rankings after taking three wickets in the Sabina Park Test.

They are both the two highest-ranked West Indies bowlers, with pacer Kemar Roach lying at 20th.
