Holder heads to the IPL as replacement player

Former West Indies limited overs captain Jason Holder is heading to the Indian Premier League (IPL) following the withdrawal of Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh. Marsh became the first player to be ruled out of the competition due to injury.

Marsh hurt his right ankle during the Sunrisers Hyderabad's first match of the tournament on September 21 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. This will be Holder's second stint with the Sunrisers  and fourth overall in the IPL.

Holder has previously featured for the Chennai Super Kings and the Kolkata Knight Riders.

According to the COVID-19 protocols put in place by the IPL, Holder would need to undergo the mandatory six-day quarantine and clear the testing process before he can join the Sunrisers' squad.
