Ian Holland

All-Rounder

Ian Holland is a right-arm bowler and right-handed batsman.

He was born in Wisconsin, USA and has represented Hampshire in all formats since making his debut in 2017.

Holland began his professional cricket career in Australia after earning a rookie contract with Victoria as a result of winning Australian reality show, Cricket Superstar, and made his Sheffield Shield debut in 2016.

The all-rounder headed to the UK during the Australian winter of 2016, joining Hampshire Second XI for the season where he impressed with bat and ball, before making his First XI debut in 2017.

The all-rounder earned first appearances in all three formats during his first season and made key contributions, particularly in the Specsavers County Championship where he claimed 19 First-Class wickets at an average of just 21.89, whilst also adding valuable middle-order runs averaging 33.

A shoulder injury suffered whilst in Australia prevented him from lining up for James Vince’s side to begin 2018, however he returned to feature in seven four-day contests during the final months of the season, contributing 15 wickets at an average of just 25.93 to help Hampshire secure a fifth-place finish in Division One.

Holland showed potential as an opening batsman when given an opportunity to begin 2019, and he impressed instantly, recording a maiden First-Class century against Warwickshire in his first fixture at the top of the order. He scoring 478 runs across nine games at an average of 31.87 in the County Championship, adding three fifties, whilst also chipping in with the ball throughout the season.

That winter also saw Holland make his international debut for USA, making his first ODI appearance against UAE. Just three months later he’d have seven ODI caps to his name with as many wickets at an average of 29.85 in that time.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a truncated 2020 domestic season, Holland enjoyed a fantastic campaign, particularly in the Bob Willis Trophy where he topped Hampshire’s list of competition wicket-takers with 17 wickets at just 17.47 apiece. It was in last year’s inaugural competition that he also recorded his best figures for the Club, running through a strong Surrey top-order to finish with 6-60.  

He also showed his skill with the bat in a shorter Vitality Blast tournament last summer, averaging 32.20 in 10 innings.

In stark contrast to his 2020 season, Holland's role was changed to opening batsman and part time bowler. He adapted fantastically to this new responsibilty. The experience wasn't completely foreign to him, having opened the batting previously in some games during the 2019 season.

The all-rounder started the season in fine form with hundred's against Middlesex and Gloucestershire, both at The Ageas Bowl. He was consistent throughout, scoring 766 runs with an average of 33 and a highscore of 146. The USA international also chipped in with six wickets during the team's red ball campaign. 

Holland featured heavily in the Royal London One Day Cup side taking eight wickets at an average of just 23, showing his multi-format qualities with both bat and ball.
