WHAT TO EXPECT:
Holland is on the comeback from recent knee surgery, but is poised to provide some much-needed support for veteran spinner – Brad Hogg and West Indian Sunil Narine. Prior to his injury, Holland proved just how damaging he could be with ball in hand, taking 50 wickets for Victoria to help them to a third straight Sheffield Shield title, and was awarded the ‘Bill Lawry’ medal as Bushrangers’ best player.
Described as a naturally attacking bowler who can subtly change his pace and generate spin off the wicket, a healthy Holland is destined to be a great asset for the Renegades’ bowling line-up.
