    Forget Kane Williamson...

    ...New Zealand has a new batting hope

    YouTube - Rachin at Indoor nets against bowlers - 2009

    only nine! first saw him when he was six, good to see he's still at it. And hes from my neck of the woods

    these bowlers didn't put him out of his comfort zone once. That offie was terrible, and the medium never looked like taking a wicket. I would of suggested going round the wicket, bowling more short stuff and a lot more of middle stump. He's not invincible but they just didn't have enough discipline to bowl to a good batsmen

    Looks bloody good for a nine year old.

    I've actually seen that kid bat live. He bats at the Hutt Recreation Ground nets. Saw him there about 2 months ago facing an older teenager (possibly his brother). Looked pretty solid.

    He's better technically than Alastair Cook, and he's 9. If he continues to put work in, and if he actually enjoys playing the game then he could be an excellent player.

    As I said last time videos of this kid were posted, 9 is no age to be making any predictions at all. I'll see where he's at in 4-5 years' time (firstly if he's still playing with much interest) then we'll talk.
