A NSW Under 17 & 19 representative, James is one of the most talented young wicketkeepers in NSW. Hailing from the Waugh country at Bankstown, James made a strong impression on the Australian captain last season. A more than useful batsman in the lower order, James had the distinction of the being the youngest regular first grade cricketer in Sydney in the 2001-02 season.
