Profile

A useful allrounder, Nitish Kumar played in all but one of Canada's eight matches at the 2010 Under-19 World Cup Qualifiers. He is also the youngest player to debut for Canada in a first-class match when he played in an ICC Intercontinental Cup fixture against Kenya in August 2009, and then subsequently became the second youngest ODI player in February 2010 at the age of 15 years 273 days - only eclipsed by Pakistan's Hasan Raza in 1996.
