Young guns to watch out for in SuperSport series
SuperCricket looks at some of the players to watch out for in the SuperSport series which starts today. They include Warriors allrounder Wayne Parnell, “the most talked about cricketer to hit the first-class scene for some time”, and 22-year-old fast bowler Basheer Walters representing the Titans team.
The Nashua Titans have developed an ability over the years to identify unfulfilled talent from other regions and turned it into the finished article. Proteas’ spin bowler Paul Harris and young all-rounder Farhaan Behardien are examples that spring to mind and they may have unearthed another diamond in 22-year-old fast bowler Basheer Walters who hails from the Eastern Province. He has done well enough at amateur level to attract attention and will certainly benefit from playing alongside the likes of Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn.
