It was beyond a dream start. A wicket with his 1st ball in IPL! Wow. Doesn’t get any better and it was David Warner’s wicket. Impressive.

Then break the record for the BEST BOWLING figures in the IPL — on debut.

And his mother died less than two months ago. Talk about the ups and downs.

Nice unassuming kid. Looks like a great prospect.

His bowling got some stick in the 2nd match and he didn’t take a wicket. But, then he shone with a bat, getting the winning runs in a mammoth runrace. His team seems to adore him. This is all good.

I am pleased. I like him. Something about him. Reminds me of the young, brooding Andy Roberts — who I knew from his days in Hampshire.
