"MS is an influential figure. In true sense, he is a leader and I found that during my stint with Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. As a captain, I have always looked upto MS's leadership qualities for inspiration," said Holder.
Asked which qualities of Dhoni he would like to imbibe in his captaincy, Holder said,"The manner in which Dhoni handles pressure is exceptional. That is the reason he has achieved so much while leading a team with players from different countries. There is so much to learn from him."
The 23-year-old Holder is one of three international captains that West Indies have currently.
The lanky pacer has played for Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad in the IPL but didn't take part this year due to West Indies' international commitments.

Holder was appointed captain last year during West Indies' tour to South Africa replacing Dwayne Bravo and he said that he was neither weighed down by the pressures of the job nor by the presence of many senior players in the dressing room.
