Ian Holland

All-Rounder

Ian Holland is a right-arm medium pace bowler and right-handed batter.

He was born in Wisconsin, USA and has represented USA in both ODIs and IT20s.

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.

Appearances in all three formats came during his first season and he made key contributions in each, 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 33.28.

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 batter 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. He also recorded his best figures for the Club, running through a strong Surrey top-order to finish with 6-60. 

The American international started the 2021 season in fine form with hundreds against Middlesex and Gloucestershire, both at Utilita Bowl, as he returned to the top of the order. He was consistent throughout, scoring 766 runs with an average of 33.30.

Holland featured heavily in the Royal London One Day Cup side taking eight wickets at an average of just 23.75, showing his multi-format qualities with both bat and ball.

An IT20 debut followed as he featured in six T20 World Cup Qualifiers for USA, taking ten wickets in the process.

The 2022 season saw Holland continue his role as an important all-rounder in the red-ball format – scoring 519 runs and taking 19 wickets. His performances were also impressive in the Royal London Cup as he topped Hampshire’s batting averages with 113 runs at 56.50, while taking eight wickets with the best economy rate of 4.02.

Opportunities in the County Championship became more limited in 2023, though he made 138* and took match figures of 5-47 during a win over Nottinghamshire.

In the Metro Bank One Day Cup, which saw Hampshire progress to the final, Holland led the team in wickets taken with 18 – which included his maiden List A five-wicket haul against Surrey.
