Jason Holder, the number 1 all-rounder in Test cricket, recently said that he wants to play all forms of the game for the country. The Test captain has remained focus on his career ambitions of being the best all-rounder in the world across all formats.
The 28-year-old, who has been leading the West Indies Test side for five years, wants to wear the colored jersey again to avoid the ‘Test Specialist’ moniker.
Jason Holder, who had played the 2016 T20 World Cup under the captaincy of Daren Sammy and captained the side in successive ODI World Cups in 2015 and 2019, is now struggling to get a place in the team for White-ball Cricket.
“I don’t want to just segregate myself and pigeon-hole myself to one particular format. Yes I’m the captain for the Test team but as I’ve crossed formats for a number of years, I think my sole focus has been on West Indies cricket, ideally in all three formats not only in Test cricket,” said Jason Holder.
Love my role as captain
Talking about captaincy, Holder said that he loves to captain the side as the role of captain brings the most out of him in matches. He further said that he always tries to act on his words while captaining the side.
“I love the leadership role; the leadership role for me is one where it makes me focus and drives me in a way where my performances definitely have to lead by example and I definitely have to practice what I preach, concluded the 28-year-old all-rounder”
