Profile

Roland Holder was a middle-order batsman who played 11 Tests and 37 ODIs for West Indies in the late 1990s at a time they were a side in transition searching for stability. He only passed fifty twice, both in his first series at home to India, but in fairness he was never really given a real chance as he had to bat at No. 6 or 7. His ODI career, which almost entirely preceded his Tests, was similar, with only two fifties in 31 middle-order innings. At domestic level he had some prolific seasons early on for Barbados, and although his form in his latter years was not as spectacular, he developed into an astute captain and was briefly thought of as a candidate to be vice-captain of the national side. An active member of WIPA, the players'association, during his career, he moved into administration after retiring and was manager of Barbados before becoming cricket operations manager at the 2007 World Cup, a post he took over at the WICB in 2008.
