Copdock sign South African A star Cody Chetty - 19/12/14

Cody ChettyCOPDOCK and Old Ipswichian have pulled off a coup with the signing of prolific South African batsman Cody Chetty.

Chetty (23) is a gifted batsman who made his first-class debut at 17, played 9 matches for South Africa Under-19s and more recently starred for the Dolphins culminating with South African A inclusion.

A batsman and useful off-spinner, despite his youth, Chetty boasts a tremendous domestic record across all three formats. He has scored 4,383 runs at 30.87 with 4 centuries and 25 fifties across 151 matches.

He has been particularly dominant in the first-class area with 2,487 runs at 37.11 with each of his centuries coming in this format.

Chetty, who attended Glenwood High School and plays for the Chatsworth Sporting club in Durban, broke into first-class cricket in 2008/09, but it was two seasons later where he started to find his feet scoring 563 runs at 40.21 in 2010/11.

He has subsequently become not only a consistent, but key performer for both KwaZulu-Natal and the Dolphins with season tally’s of 519 runs at 39.92 (2011/12), 505 runs at 36.07 (2012/13) and 632 runs at 48.61 (2013/14).

Courtesy of his success, particularly for the Dolphins (1,227 runs at 36.08 over 23 first-class matches), Chetty was rewarded with selection for the South African A side that played in the Darwin Quadrangular One-Day Series in July/August 2014.

He impressed, particularly against the Australia National Performance Squad hitting a 58-ball 55 not out to guide the side to victory in pursuit of 255.

Chetty is hoping his stint for Copdock in the East Anglian Premier League will push his claim towards full national honours.
