West Indies Test captain Jason Holder, roped in as a late replacement, is warming the bench for SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL 2020 thus far. SRH have some fine international stars like Kane Williamson, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Rashid Khan to fill in the limited spots in the starting XI.

Holder has thus been on the bench. But he is trying to keep himself as active as possible. The former top ranked Test all-rounder said that he likes to stay ahead of the match and thus staying updated with the proceedings of the game. He also added that it helps his brain to keep ticking over the span of time.

I try to be as active as I possibly can: Jason Holder

“Yeah, I always like to stay ahead of the game even though I am sitting on the sidelines I try to stay tuned to what is going on the field. I think it helps me to keep my brains ticking over and not be too bored on the sidelines.

“I try to be as active as I possibly can. And hopefully, if I get a chance can share my expertise,” Jason Holder told Harsha Bhogle during the match between SRH and KKR.

Holder with his experience will look to add firepower to the attack. The West Indies all-rounder is capable to contribute for the side with the bat and ball will come in handy for the side.

Holder has an experience of playing 116 T20 matches. He has scored 949 runs in these matches at an average of 14.16 and has picked up 91 wickets with one four-wicket haul to his name.
