Jason Holder ready for County debut
West Indies captain Jason Holder is set and ready for his County debut at Northamptonshire during the first part of the 2019 English season, the club officially announced Thursday.
The West Indies captain will play first two Championship matches - against Middlesex from April 5 and Glamorgan from April 11 and the opening six One-Day Cup games.
"England is somewhere I've wanted to play for a long time and I'm looking forward to the experience of county cricket and testing myself in the different conditions," Holder said.
"I'm hopeful from a personal point that it will provide me a good opportunity of acclimatizing to English conditions and getting some time in the middle ahead of the World Cup in England," he added.
Meanwhile, Holder, who is currently ranked as the world's top all-rounder, faced a ban by ICC in the third Test against England due to slow-over rate.
