    SeamUp, Kleinveldt has been at the club for 3 weeks now, and is pretty much universally loved by everyone. Big personality, effervescent and seems like a great guy

    Thanks mate. Rory is a good bloke. I'm sure he will be trying to catch some Nerwcastle games when the football season resumes.

    Some unfortunate news came through in recent days that Johnny Kleinveldt (Rory's uncle) who was a successful cricketer during isolation passed away.

    Nice interviews with SA u19 captain Bryce Parsons. Think he is one to seriously watch.

    Bryce Parsons ? TAG Foundation

    A more recent one than the above.

    Bryce Parsons has been appointed as the captain of the South Africa under-19s ahead of their home tour against Pakistan after several standout performances in his first tour against India earlier this year.

    The impressive all-rounder will lead a squad of 15 in a seven-match Youth One-Day International (ODI) series taking place in Pietermaritzburg and Chatsworth between June 22 and July 7.

    The 18-year old made his SA U19s debut in the first Youth Test match in the team's tour to India in February before going on to feature in the second Test. He subsequently earned four more caps in South Africa’s third-place finish during the quadrangular Youth ODI series that included India U19 'A', 'B' and Afghanistan.

    Despite being one of only three players who played every match in the tour of the subcontinent, Parsons expressed his surprise at the appointment but is already looking forward to the series and helping his side achieve its targets.

    "It's obviously a massive privilege to captain my country in this upcoming tour against Pakistan," the youngster said.

    "I am pretty shocked to be captain because I didn't think I'd get it but I am grateful for this opportunity that has come to hand. I am just going to try lead from the front and set a good example for the team, try to add to the team culture and help everyone get ready for the games.

    "As a team, we really want to win the series, to bounce back from what happened in India. Personally, I just want to lead well. It's going to be my first tour as captain, so I want to do well and hopefully win the series."

    In India, Parsons shone thanks to his all-round ability with bat and ball. He scored 239 runs, including two half-centuries and a six-wicket haul (6/77) in the longer format before adding a further seven wickets to his tally in the Youth ODI matches at an average of 18.42.

    The King Edwards VII School matriculant and First XI skipper is relishing the added responsibility that captaincy will bring and is focused on leading through his performances to inspire his team-mates.

    "Most players love the extra challenges in the game, and I am no different," Parsons added. "I just want to take this challenge (of captaincy) in my stride and lead from the front with the players. If you are doing well as a captain, the whole team will have confidence. I just have to focus on doing what I do best and then try and lead the team."

    With the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2020 on the forefront of the team's preparations, Parsons believes that a tight team spirit will do well for team's chances in the upcoming series against Pakistan.

    "It's really important to for the coaching staff and myself that we stick together as a team, in good times and in bad, that's most important," he explained.

    "If everyone is there for each other with no individuals or players playing for themselves, we'll all pull through and do enough to get selected for this team and represent it well. We have a lot of experienced guys who've gone to India and have seen the challenges that lie ahead."

    SA U19s head coach, Lawrence Mahatlane shared his thoughts on the appointment of Parsons, saying:

    "Bryce is a very special player. He was the U17 Cricketer of the Year in 2017 and the Khaya Majola Week Cricketer of the Year last year as a grade 11 pupil, so his cricket pedigree is very good. He was also outstanding in India. So, as a leader, this is an opportunity for him to keep standing up and showing his leadership qualities.

    "He's also captained his school side this year and various age-group sides over the years. It will be good to watch how he captains the SA U19s and I am quite excited to watching him share the way he thinks about the game, with the whole squad."

    The squad again.

    1. Jonathan Bird (Western Province)
    2. Ruan Terblanche (Boland)
    3. Luke Beaufort (wk) (Eastern Province)
    4. Bryce Parsons (c) (Guateng)
    5. Michael Copeland (Gauteng)
    6. Tiaan van Vuuren (Eastern Province)
    7. Gerald Coetzee (Free State)
    8. Nonelela Yikha (Border)
    9. Achille Cloete (Boland)
    10. Siya Plaatjie (Western Province)
    11. Lifa Ntanzi (Kwa-Zulu Natal Coastal)

    Good to see EP's Tiaan Van Vuuren back after a serious injury. Left-arm swing bowler who hits the cricket ball hard.

    They will probably get an extra batsman in there. Other players are Andrew Louw (Free State) , Akeem Minnaar (Boland), Khanya Cotani (North West) & Imraan Philander (WP). Think Louw is a batsman & Minnaar/Cotani are keepers.

    Stiaan's 9th score of 150+ in FC cricket at Lord's : https://twitter.com/SussexCCC/status...75107529826304

    Harmer top of the pops in Div 1 again.

    Wiese & Parnell taking wickets and scoring runs.

    So frustrating that Kolpaks are cleaning up at this time.

    Also SeamUp Corne Dry is playing at Carlton CC (Edinburgh). Remember him from 2012 U19 WC - looked a real prospect

    Think he has played in Ireland before too. Probably just didn;t kick on. High 120s away swingers.

    Other players over in UK with Kleinveldt, Linde and Dry above that I know (more well known better players as there are loads of others)

    David Bedingham (Plumtree) - in Notts
    Keegan Petersen (Stroud) - in Gloucestershire
    Ryan Rickelton (West Bridgfordians) - in Notts
    Eddie Moore (Rochdale) - Lancs
    Marco Marais (Brewers)

    Another pathetic run chase from an SA team.

    Parsons left stranded on 57 off 64 & add in his 10 2-24 with spin and his tour to India earlier this year and he is legit serious potential.

    Saw that. What sort of pitches they playing on? I`m guessing slow from the score cards. Nice to see more all-rounders coming through. How is Coetzee 4th choice bowler?

    In the winter even if in Dubran it probably is slow. You see it when the SA A side play games at home this time of year too.

    I also thought it odd. He was just opening the bowling for the Knights so not sure if a niggle has played role or not but then he wouldn't be bowling.

    How good is Parson's bowling? Is he a genuine attacking option who could be a long-term test spinner for us, or is he more just a useful all-rounder type?

    Got to see him still. But I've heard serious ability by many people in the know in SA Junior cricket.

    Definitely batsmen first and he seems to be adaptable too conditions which is brilliant considering he has learnt his cricket in Joburg/Benoni.

    Robin Peterseon who works with the SA u19 team seems to really rate his potential with the ball. I think it will be a bonus of he is good enough to be a test spinner (batting will decide) but in a limited overs side it sounds like he could be gold.

    If he could establish himself as a top 6 batsman and bowl solid spin he could be a tremendous asset, potentially even allowing us to run a four-prong pace attack in SA.

    Not sure if I'm being anecdotal but I wonder if he won't go the Parnell route (hopefully performing much better though) and focus more on his bowling despite doing both at u19 level. I think if he's a genuine test-quality spinner it might be more important to focus on that, even if he's a batting AR for now.
