Profile

A stylish, elegant bat and occasional medium-pace bowler, Nick de Groot was born in North York, Ontario, but learned his cricket in Guyana. His talent was soon recognised, and he debuted against the touring Australians in 1994-95 at the age of 19. Selected at the youth level for the West Indies he soon became Guyana's regular opening bat. He perhaps failed to realise his potential, with no first-class hundreds in over 30 matches, and he seemed to have little chance of international honours until he decided to throw in his lot with Canada in the ICC Trophy in 2001. This in retrospect was a good decision, as he made an important contribution to Canada's third-place finish, and qualification for the 2003 World Cup.
