David Robert Holt (born 29 December 1981 in Hammersmith, London, England) is an English cricketer[1] who has also represented the France national cricket team.[2]


David Holt's cricket career began in 1999 when he began to play for the Middlesex second XI.[2] The same year, he represented England Under-19s at the Under-19 European Championship in Belfast,[3] though the next year, he was playing for France at the senior European Championship, qualifying for them due to his French mother.[4] He played just one match in the tournament, against Greece.[3]

He did not play for France again after that year, continuing to play for the Middlesex second XI alongside various other teams[2] before making his first-class debut for Loughborough UCCE against Nottinghamshire in 2005. He played a further first-class match for the university side against Hampshire the following season.[5]
