We are pleased to announce that Zimbabwe Under-19 pair Campbell Light and Kyle Bowie have joined the CricX stable.
The talented youngsters are seeking opportunities to play UK league cricket in 2013, but not before representing their county in the forthcoming ICC Under-19 World Cup in Australia.
Both players are seam bowling all-rounders who come endorsed by former Blackcap legend Chris Harris, the current coach of the Zimbabwean Under-19 side.
Campbell Light is a batting all-rounder who's been part of the Mashonaland Eagles training squad over the past two seasons. He has represented his country throughout the age-groups and was awarded Zimbabwe’s “player of the series” for his exploits in the tri-series with Pakistan and South Africa, averaging 38.33 with the bat, including a 61-ball 59* against the latter.
Kyle Bowie is a sharp opening bowler and useful middle-lower order batsman who has already enjoyed 10 outings for the Zimbabwe Under-19 side. He is quite the sportsman - he was part of his Colleges' Athletics team and was their golf championship. He was also selected to play Rugby at national level, but turn down the honour in favour of furthering his cricket career.
Both players will be ones to watch during the World Cup next month and also players to consider for league cricket in 2013, especially as they can enter and work in the UK without restriction.
Their respective profiles can be found by clicking the links below.
