I finally got my chance
after years of working hard and practising and still getting good figures , my coach in the old school over looked me maybe because he was a racist , because thats what the word went around inn my school at that time , i used to get figures of 4-20 5-36 and my avg never went above 12 in a season!
that was 2 years ago , and i kept doing well everytime and yet i didnt make the Colts side for my school... yet 2 spots were given to 2 tennis players who didnt play cricket at all that season but had some prior knowledge..
I was confused i was sent to the best school down south , i did very well with off spin bowling and had an avg of 25 with bat for a middle/lower order batsmen..
Finally i came up to auckland ! and i got into club cricket and made 1st eleven for my school ! i was glad i was still carrying around the good form i had .. and after 1 season of club that ended around march 2003 , i got called up for North Harbour Under 17's Trials
and 2 days ago i got a call saying they were really impressed by what they had seen and never seen a young off spinner show so much promise.. And i had made N.Harbour Under 17 Dev Squad which over the winter you have winter trainings and from that you are divided into N.Harbour A squad and N.Harbour B squad
N.Harbour in new zealand is kinda like a step below our county .. eg below playing for Auckland Cricket..
And i get the opportunity to better my skills and train with A level coaches and Black Caps like L.Vincent , K.Mills , B.Walker , A.Parore, D.Nash, J.Mills ( who is our head coach ) M Richardson , M Horne and many others !!
Im so glad i finally made it into a Rep side and thank god.. im just going to keep workin harder to be New Zealands best off spinner which we need one !!
