Quite right, it's unusual to be picked that young and indicative of his outstanding talent but it also reflects the fact that our current crop of bowlers are not all that great. If our attack was consistently working well he would have been made to wait longer. A reasonable comparison would be when Craig McDermott made his debut in 1985 at the age of 19, also at a time when our side was struggling.
