Muthusamy gets debut SA ‘A’ nod
Durban - Hollywoodbets Dolphins’ all-rounder Senuran Muthusamy has been
called up to join the South Africa A squad set to face Australia in a tour
match to be played at Sahara Park Willowmore from February 22 to 24.
This 23-year-old has over time proved to everyone that he has what it
takes to reach the pinnacle of his cricket career and he is going about it
the right way. Having played just 52 First-class matches, the young
left-hander has amassed 2649 runs and taken 82 wickets.
Muthusamy displayed a great amount of aptitude as an all-rounder in the
recent Momentum One Day Cup campaign, but the four-day Sunfoil Series is
where the former Clifton College pupil made his mark in the Dolphins set
“I think that I've learned more about myself and what helps me do well,”
explained Muthusamy, “I've really tried to be as consistent as I can in my
preparation and performances over the past few months.
“It was not a complete surprise as I have planned on moving my career
forward through consistent performances with bat and ball – it's a huge
honour and I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to represent the
SA A team.”
The chance to face some of the world’s premier bowlers will give Muthusamy
a solid gauge on where he stands.
“It is a terrific opportunity to experience playing against Australia, and
test myself against some high-quality players,” he said.
As many other cricket players have role models and other fellow cricketers
whom they look up to, Muthusamy appreciates the way in which another
classy left-hander, Kumar Sangakkara, went about playing the game.
“Somebody I've always enjoyed watching is Kumar Sangakkara from Sri Lanka;
apart from being a good cricketer he is a good human being and a humble
man,” Muthusamy concluded.
The calm demeanour of Muthusamy might draw some slight similarities to
that of Sri Lanka’s super star Sangakkara.
Muthusamy will join his Hollywoodbets Dolphins captain Khaya Zondo who has
been selected to lead to side.
