In 2017, he moved to the UK to take up a contract with Hampshire where he played all 3 formats for them and has become an integral part of their red and white ball teams.. In 2019, he made the most of his American passport making his ODI debut for the USA.
Ian balances his lifestyle with a number of different interests and activities. When he’s away on tour Ian has a keen interest in reading & learning about things such as business, leadership & investment for personal growth. These are all things of interest that relate to his life and future endeavours post cricket. Ian will always jump at an opportunity to travel or learn about the culture of a country while on tour to make the most of his experience.
When he’s back home in Melbourne Ian enjoys nothing more than spending time with his partner and family, be that on a hike, on the golf course or at the beach.
Ian runs his own small coaching business @ianhollandcoaching (Instagram) and is an ambassador for Epicgood foundation where he is actively involved in a cricket scholarship that sends a player to the UK each year. Ian has also been involved with a high performing healthcare business in Icon Group and gained exposure to various parts of the business.
