West Indies captain Jason Holder and fellow fast bowler Kemar Roach have made significant strides in the latest ICC Test rankings released on Tuesday.

Holder, who last week became the top-ranked all-rounder in the world, jumped four spots in the bowlers rankings this time around and now lies on a career-best sixth place.

The 27-year-old has also now reached 778 rating points which marks the highest by a West Indies bowler since legendary speedster Courtney Walsh retired 18 years ago.

Holder followed up his unbeaten double century in the first Test in Bridgetown with an outstanding performance with the ball in the second innings of the second Test in Antigua last weekend, which the Windies won emphatically by 10 wickets.

It was his spell after lunch that broke the backbone of the England batting and helped send them crashing for 132 all out in their second innings at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
