Former Test captain Jason Holder has been named as one of Wisden’s five Cricketers-of-the-Year.

The 29-year-old joins Englishmen Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley and Darren Stevens, along with Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan on the prestigious list for 2020.

In making the announcement late Wednesday, Wisden said Holder “was at the helm when West Indies toured England and played a central role in his side’s only win over England” during last year’s historic three-Test tour at the height of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

West Indies white ball captain, Kieron Pollard, was also named by Wisden as the Leading T20 Cricketer in the World.
