BRIDGETOWN, Barbados - Barbados batsman Alcindo Holder said he is steadily recovering from a near-death stabbing and is hoping to regain his place in the Barbados team for the West Indies domestic season next year.

The 25-year-old received multiple wounds after being knifed in a domestic altercation in April, just days before moving to England to playing in the Bolton League.

He was out of the game and spent six months recovering before making a return in a domestic match last weekend.

"I will check with the BCA (Barbados Cricket Association) and let them know I'm available," the 25-year-old former Young West Indies right-hander said.

"I still believe I have a chance of playing for the West Indies, but I will take it step by step and move slowly ahead. I'm not rushing life.

"At one point, I thought I would never play (cricket) again...But I'm here alive and I can play cricket. I'm not 100 per cent back yet, about 75 to 80 percent, but I have life and I have hope.

"I believe I am strong enough to play, but over the next few weeks, I will be working to build up my strength and be fully ready for the Carib Beer Series and the Stanford Twenty20 Cup."

In his brief career, Holder has played nine first-class matches making 354 runs with a top score of 84. He has made 12 appearances in limited-overs matches scoring 230 runs with a best of 38 not out.
