2 mins read :

Just before the England vs West Indies Test series is all set to start, Jason Holder, the all-rounder from West Indies has said that he feels that maybe he does not get as much credit as he deserves. Holder is the second player from West Indies to hold the number one ranking among all-rounders in Test cricket, after Garry Sobers. 

 Jason will be leading the West Indies team and Ben Stokes will be leading England, in the absence of Joe Roots. He boasts a career-best 473 points going into the first Test. The Barbados player is 28 years old and has been at the top-ranking since January 2019. Ben Stokes, on the other hand, has 407 points and is thus at the second position in ICC rankings.

“I don’t really like to get into these personal accolades or ICC rankings. Ben has always been talked up and quite rightfully so, he”s a really good cricketer, but the ICC rankings say that I’m the No. 1 ranked allrounder and maybe don’t get as much credit as probably I deserve, who knows,” ESPNCricinfo quoted Holder as saying.

“I don’t get caught up with it, to be honest. Journalists are there to write their stories, I am merely here to play cricket. It’s always a good battle on the field when you face competitors like Stokesy, face competitors around the world,” he added.

The skipper also said that he thinks Ben is an excellent leader and will definitely lead the English team in the right way.

“I’ll give my advice to Stokesy after the series. England is in capable hands: he’s an excellent cricketer, a great competitor and I’m sure the guys in his dressing room look up to him. He’ll have experienced campaigners in his dressing room to help him along, I”m sure, so I wish him all the best in this one game as captain,” Holder said.
