Hailing from Barbados, Jason Holder, a right-arm pace bowler, played just one first-class game before entering the big league. He was called up for the 2010 Under-19 World Cup in the land of the Kiwis where he became West Indies' leading wicket-taker with 13 scalps.
Later in 2012, he was named in the West Indies ODI squad for their series against Bangladesh, but eventually made his international debut against Australia a year later. He was then picked by Chennai in the sixth edition of the Indian T20 League, in the same year and impressed with his pace and bounce. Later that year, he had a good outing against Pakistan in the home series. In the first ODI he finished with a miserly spell of 4/13 from 10 overs but unfortunately, Pakistan lost the match as Afridi wreaked havoc with figures of 7/12. In the third ODI in St Lucia, he along with Kemar Roach helped West Indies conjure a tie with 15 runs needed off the last over. Holder will once again play in 2014 edition of the Indian T20 League after he was bought by the Hyderabad franchise.
