Cricket Australia had paid tribute to former Australian cricketer Bob Holland OAM, who has died aged 70 after a battle with cancer. Holland played 11 Tests and 2 One-Day Internationals for Australia, remarkably making his Test debut at the age of 38.

The leg-spinner enjoyed a lengthy first-class career with New South Wales, and picked up 34 wickets at Test level, including two ten-wicket match hauls - one of those in a famous victory against a star-studded West Indies side at the SCG in 1984-85.

The third and fourth places are also taken by spinners with India’s Ravichandran Ashwin and Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath taking those positions.
