Playing Role


Of the left-arm orthodox variety, Brad Young is South Australia's premier contemporary spinner. Like most slow bowlers, he does not possess a particularly vigorous run-up or action but he stands out from others on account of his capacity to generate excellent control and flight from a delivery motion which incorporates a high leading arm and an ability to impart varying degrees of spin. To this stage of his career, Young's returns at interstate level have been relatively modest but he has nevertheless played a starring role in a number of Redbacks victories and has warranted sufficient attention to be included in a handful of one-day international teams. The flinty Young is also an excellent (and often very aggressive) lower order batsman; he already has a first class century to his name and has passed fifty on several other occasions. He is additionally very wholehearted in the field, a trait which has been underlined by his ability to claim a succession of magnificent catches (especially in the gully region) during his State career and which was even manifested in his act of clattering into boundary hoardings and seriously damaging his knee while trying to save runs during a one-day international in Sydney in early 1999.
