Same was said of Kirk McKenzie after A Tour. They have talent but there's work to be done. Specialized coaching, high performance center work 2-3 yrs solid FC returns...

Kirk scored one century in a three team match series, which I say the format was useless.
This youngster performed during the 2022 and 2023 regional U19 tournament, and continue to perform on his first series away from the region.
The guy has two tons and 2-3 fifties, on this tour.
Tell the scored of Kirk during and after the U19 level.

Jordan Johnson scoring runs years now... He forced his way into the last WI U19 world Cup squad after scoring back to back tons in the practice matches.. He was 15 or 16 back then.

If Jamaica doesn't pick him for the super50... which is coming up shortly, I hope CWI pull him into the Emerging squad.

It is so good that we have this forum, where we can follow these players, I never heard anything about him last year, as he scored runs in his first match, I read about him continuing where he left off, that got my attention.
It has been Up and every since.

This young man is a diamond in the rough. Please protect him at all cost.

When Kalli was scoring regional and on tour county tons he was way better than this youngster but only debuted because Yagga got injured. I know men gonna say different days now and cupboard bare yaa, yaa, yaa. But if men rush this kid into tests on tracks faster than Sub-Con vs. top class bowlers of all varieties and he struggles same 'mouts' will cut him to pieces. Gradual development. FC team then A team...

A team to South Africa. After playing the spin in Lanka, let him play the quicks in SA. I have said in the past that those are the two countries that we need to do consistent A tours to. I would also add Ireland so that our guys get to play on some green pitches with seaming balls. I am assuming that England, Oz and Bharat/India will be too busy to play with small fry like us.
