Holder workload to be managed — Harper

BRIDGETOWN, Bar­ba­dos – Se­lec­tors will be mon­i­tor­ing the work­load of a pre­mier all-rounder, Ja­son Hold­er, es­pe­cial­ly with the 29-year-old heav­i­ly in­volved in all three for­mats for West In­dies.

Last week, he was the on­ly play­er to be re­ward­ed with an all-for­mats con­tract, a re­flec­tion of the Bar­ba­di­an’s per­for­mance over the last year in all three ver­sions of the game

How­ev­er, chief se­lec­tor Roger Harp­er re­it­er­at­ed while Hold­er was key for the Caribbean side, his pan­el were keen on avoid­ing burnout

«It’s some­thing we’ve al­ready been look­ing at and try­ing to plan ahead in dis­cus­sion with the play­er as well,» Harp­er said

«We have a packed sched­ule this year for the re­main­der of the year so it is some­thing that we will cer­tain­ly take in­to con­sid­er­a­tion as we go ahead.»

Pre­mier Test all-rounder Ja­son Hold­er

Hold­er, an ac­com­plished low­er-or­der bats­man and seam­er, has made his name in Tests where he cur­rent­ly sits on top of the all-rounder’s rank­ings, av­er­ag­ing 33 with the bat and 27 with the ball

While still cap­tain, he fea­tured in all five Tests last year on tours of Eng­land and New Zealand but opt­ed out of the se­ries in Bangladesh last Feb­ru­ary be­fore re­turn­ing for the rub­ber against Sri Lan­ka in the Caribbean a month lat­er

He has al­so played a steady di­et of One-Day In­ter­na­tion­als ac­cu­mu­lat­ing 118 to his name and re­cent­ly re­turned to the Twen­ty20 side for the Sri Lan­ka se­ries

How­ev­er, Harp­er ad­mit­ted that rest­ing play­ers in the COVID-19 en­vi­ron­ment came with chal­lenges, es­pe­cial­ly with se­ries be­ing staged in bio-se­cure bub­bles and with in­ter­na­tion­al trav­el now ham­pered by quar­an­tine reg­u­la­tions

«You have to un­der­stand as well we’re in a sit­u­a­tion here in COVID times [where] it’s not easy for rest to be al­lo­cat­ed … and if there is rest then it still prob­a­bly has to be with­in the bub­ble be­cause trav­el is not an easy thing,» he ex­plained

«Trav­el doesn’t just mean fly­ing some­where, it means prob­a­bly quar­an­ti­ning when you come in and when­ev­er you’re go­ing back to wher­ev­er you’re go­ing back to, and then to come back and quar­an­tine again

«So a lot of care­ful thought and plan­ning has to be put in­to this. It’s some­thing we have marked as a pri­or­i­ty and we’re look­ing at it.»

Hold­er led West In­dies in 37 of his 47 Tests, win­ning 11, los­ing 21 and draw­ing five games, be­fore he was sacked last March and re­placed by fel­low Bar­ba­di­an Kraigg Brath­waite

He al­so un­der­took the bur­den of ODI skip­per for 4-½ years and led the re­gion­al side to the World Cup in 2019 be­fore be­ing re­lieved of his du­ties lat­er that year
