All-rounder Ian Holland has joined Northamptonshire on loan from Hampshire.

The 28 year old will be available for the remainder of the Royal London One Day Cup as well as the upcoming tour match against Pakistan. 

A middle-order batsman and fast medium bowler, Holland was born in the USA to a British father and an American mother, before heading to Australia when he was a toddler.

Holland’s addition to the squad will help add strength to a bowling group that’s been hampered by injury so far this year. 

“With 3 seamers down and an injury to Jason Holder we felt the need to add to our squad for the rest of our 50 over campaign.” Northamptonshire head coach David Ripley said.

“Ian played against us in La Manga and caught the eye, he’s a 3 dimensional cricketer perfect for 50 over cricket.”
