Parsons relishing Dolphins move
Durban – Former South Africa Under 19 captain Bryce Parsons is looking
forward to making Durban home when he moves from the highveld to the
coastal city to take up a professional contract with the Hollywoodbets
Dolphins for the upcoming domestic cricket season.
Parsons, whose brief senior career has been based in Johannesburg with
the Lions, never really considered a move to Durban until the latter
stages of last season when he was in contact with the Dolphins and the
decision was made.
“I got a call towards the end of last season before we went into the
bubble and things moved kind of quickly from there and I am really
excited and cannot wait to start,” Parsons said.
“Personally I think it’s a good decision for me because looking at the
squad there are a lot of people that I can learn from and there’s a good
mix between youth and experience.
“I also think that the conditions will suit the way that I play and be
beneficial for me.”
The Dolphins have shown over the past few seasons that they are a force
to be reckoned with in South African cricket, winning a number of
trophies including the prized 4-Day Domestic Series crown last term.
Joining a side that has been successful was another motivation factor
for Parsons who feels he needs the confidence boost as he heads into the
next stage of his career.
“The Dolphins have developed quite a good winning culture over the last
few years and I want to learn from that and develop a winning culture
“It’s important that I grow as a cricketer and learn as much as I can
from as many people as I can and I think that’s going to be a big part
of me moving down to Durban.”
For the 20 year-old the move to Durban comes with a number of personal
challenges, however Parsons is looking forward to taking on the new
“I’m still trying to get my head around moving away from home and
leaving my girlfriend which is going to be tough but I’ve got to keep
moving forward in my career.
“I feel that leaving home will help me develop as a person and I think
eventually that will help my cricket.
“Living alone is going to be a big change for me but it is something
that I want to do and something that will help me develop as an
individual,” he added.
