The Bristol prospect went on to take 18 wickets and amass 388 runs during last years campaign, again averaging in the high 20's and recording two half-centuries. After a number of terrific performances, Cyrus was rewarded with selection for the South Asian Cricket Academy; with the 20-year-old playing in a number of all format fixtures against First-Class County 2nd XI sides.
