West Indies Test captain Jason Holder has remained focused on his career ambitions of being the best all-rounder in the world as it was announced that he kept his spot at the top of the Test rankings.

The 28-year-old, who has led West Indies in Tests for the last five years including the Wisden Trophy Series win over England last year, has emerged as one of the world’s leading players in the longest format where he has been ranked as the number one all-rounder for over a year now.

"My sole focus is West Indies cricket. I just want to make that very clear. Yes, I'm the captain of the Test side and that's obviously where the leadership side of me lies. But I think my contribution solely is to West Indies cricket," Holder said.

He further added that "I think West Indies cricket is so diverse in many different ways and for us as players, we’ve got to understand each and every one of us has a part to play in this whole puzzle.

“I don’t want to just segregate myself and pigeon-hole myself to one particular format. Yes I’m the captain for the Test team but as I’ve crossed formats for a number of years, I think my sole focus has been on West Indies cricket, ideally in all three formats not only in Test cricket.”

The England Cricket Board (ECB) will have to enter into unchartered waters, being the first country to attempt to prepare a "bio-secure" environment for professional cricket to be played.

This according to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Johnny Grave yesterday. The Englishman said that talks have already begun and by the end of May, CWI will be in a better position to understand whether the ECB can complete the task.

"The ECB has an enormous task on their hands to pull this tour off and we have already begun talks. I have been in contact with my opposite at the ECB Tom Harrison, while Roland Holder our cricket operations manager has been in talks with their cricket operations manager John Carr. For this tour to come off we will have to ensure that player safety is the first thing.

"We also have to consider the safety of the country our players are coming from as well as the community they live in. This means that the ECB will have to ensure a bio-secure environment for cricket. They will then have to get the UK Government to approve this before they come to us.
