Only Australian seamer Pat Cummins has a higher points total than Holder’s, which is the best for any West Indies bowler on the ICC list since Courtney Walsh 20 years ago.

Holder also heads the ICC rankings for Test all-rounders, above Ben Stokes – the opposing captain at the Ageas Bowl as West Indies triumphed by four wickets to go 1-0 up in the three-match series.

England paceman James Anderson has slipped two places to 10th in the rankings, despite returning figures of 3-42 in the tourists’ first innings.
