Former Barbados captain Roland Holder is set to take up a new job at the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). The 40-year-old Holder, who has also played for West Indies, will be employed as a cricket operations officer on a two-year contract starting on October 1.

He brings to the position the experience of having served as a cricket operations manager at the 2007 World Cup. "It is a similar area to what I've worked in with the World Cup. It will be more challenging, but I have the World Cup template," Holder said. "If we can try to get some of those implemented or we can buy into them, we will be in good shape."

A former Barbados team manager, Holder also has the experience of serving on the Barbados Cricket Association board of management between 2003 and 2005 and he was elected in 2007 for another two-year term. He has now resigned from this post.

Holder was one of Barbados' leading batsmen in a 16-year first-class career in which he played 11 Tests and 37 ODIs.
