Cameron Delport (23) is a star in the making who burst onto the domestic scene in January 2009 making his Dolphins debut in the MTN Domestic Championship. The following week, in only his second first-class match for KwaZulu-Natal he blitzed his maiden first-class century (110 off 87 balls) backing up his 77 in the first-innings against Easterns. This prompted inclusion for the Dolphins final five matches of the SuperSport series.
Nephew of former South African batsman Dave Callaghan, Delport is a destructive left-hand batsman who bowls brisk medium pace who initially made a name for himself in England. He started off as an exchange student at Westville Boys in 2007 and through former Proteas coach Graham Forde, managed to play various representative games throughout the season. He was involved with the Hampshire Under-17s that were crowned national champions and also the Under-19 side. He was selected for the England Under-17 team and was in the Under-19 squad before returning back to South Africa to do his matric. He also managed to play County Second XI games for Kent and also a Kent/Middlesex XI which he bludgeoned 66 off 66 (4x6s, 7x4s) in his debut match.
The Dolphins star is clearly a player destined for higher honours who also boasts a UK Ancestry Visa who is now available to return abroad for the rest of the 2013 season.
