Ian Holland Pens New Contract Extension

The Hampshire all-rounder has put pen-to-paper on a new extended deal

Hampshire Cricket are delighted to announce that Ian Holland has signed a new contract extension.

The 30-year-old all-rounder has been awarded an extended deal which will see him remain at The Ageas Bowl until at least the end of 2022.

Holland arrived at Hampshire in 2016, joining Hampshire Second XI for the season where he impressed with bat and ball, before making his First XI debut in 2017.

The right-armer earned first appearances in all three formats during his first season and made key contributions, particularly in the 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 scored 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.  

I’m really excited to continue my journey with Hampshire and desperately want to be part of a team that wins trophies here.

Ian Holland

We're really pleased that Ian has committed his future to Hampshire. He is an experienced all-rounder who has been an important contributor in all formats for us over the last few seasons – he has a selfless attitude and is an asset to the Club both on and off the field.
