Skipper Holder leading from the front

West Indies captain Jason Holder is leading from the front. At the end of the preliminary round of the ICC Cricket World Cup.

Holder is at the top of the West Indies batting averages and second in the bowling.

He has scored 113 runs at an average of 56.5 from three innings and his runs have come at a strike rate of 110.9.

In the bowling department, he has taken nine wickets at an average of 30.55 and this is despite the mauling he received at the hands of South Africa, where he became the first West Indian to concede over 100 runs in an ODI.

Apart from Holder, the other top batsmen are Chris Gayle who has scored 279 runs at 55.80, including a world record 215 against Zimbabwe. Fellow Jamaican Marlon Samuels has scored 203 runs at 40.6, Lendl Simmons 161 at 40.25 and Darren Sammy 150 at 37.5.

Jerome Taylor has the most wickets (14) at 18.35. Andre Russell has taken nine at 27.44 and Gayle five at 19.0.

West Indies are into the quarter-finals and will meet New Zealand on Friday at Wellington.
