As a batter, it is hard not to get intimidated when a strapping, broad-shouldered fast bowler from the Caribbean looks down on you from six feet seven inches. That’s probably one reason why sides in the shortest format decide to include Jason Holder in their squads. After representing the Chennai Super Kings in 2013, the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015, Kolkata Knight Riders in 2016, Holder was back in the 2020 and 2021 seasons with the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Holder sparked a bidding war at the 2022 IPL auction where he was bought by the Lucknow Super Giants for Rs. 8.75 crore. He picked up 14 wickets from 12 matches in IPL 2022. RR and CSK were locked in a bidding war to get the services of Holder in the IPL 2023 auction before the hammer came down in favour of RR at Rs. 5.75 crore. Holder, who brings leadership qualities to the table, can bowl at any stage of the game and use the long handle to change the course of the match, will be a solid addition to the RR squad.
