Bio

There will be a lot of pressure on Australia’s first “Cricket Superstar” when he makes his debut for the Victoria Bushrangers.

The 22-year-old was a deserved winner of the Foxtel program, earning him a rookie contract with the Bushrangers.

Before he was famous, Holland represented Victoria in an under-19 carnival in Canberra, where he impressed with his all-round skills.

Fresh from his competition win, “Dutchy” struck 69 against the ACT in the Futures League.

The knock saw him named 12th man for the Bushrangers ahead of their trip to North Sydney Oval.

A couple of quiet games followed, before he took two wickets against the NSW under-23 side, and added 29 with the bat.

Holland won the Ryder Medal in 2014-15 after a standout season in the Victorian Premier Cricket ranks, during which he accumulated 724 runs and 52 wickets. He went on to make his first-class debut for Victoria against Tasmania in February 2016.

With plenty of natural ability, and age on his side, Holland should decide if he wants to be a batsman who can bowl, or a bowler who can bat.

Then the rest of Australia can see just why he was named our next Cricket Superstar.
