2 cricketers who played in the 2008 U19 World Cup but made senior debut only recently
The U19 World Cup batch is a famous batch for the current generation of cricket. This batch gave some top names to the game such as Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Trent Boult and Ravindra Jadeja. Interestingly, a few players from this batch have already arrived at the final stage of their careers. However, a few of them made their debut only recently. On that note, in this article, we take a look at two cricketers who played in the 2008 U19 World Cup but made their senior debut only recently.
1) Michael Bracewell (New Zealand) - All formats debut in 2022
The Kiwi all-rounder was a part of the U19 squad in 2008 along with the likes of Williamson, Boult and Corey Anderson. However, it was only last year that he made his debut in all three formats of the game. Since then, he has been an important part of the side. In the recent ODI series against India, Bracewell showed his skills with the bat. A left-handed big-hitter and a right-arm off-spinner is a good combination and some IPL teams could be interested in him for the future campaigns.
2) Shamarh Brooks (West Indies) - Test debut in 2019, ODI debut in 2022 and T20I debut in 2021
Shamarh Brooks is one of the cricketers who played in the 2008 U19 World Cup but made their senior debut only recently. While he made his Test debut in 2019, which is relatively late compared to other players in his batch, it was only recently that he made his white-ball debut. It was due to his strong performances in domestic cricket that got him a chance in the white-ball setup.
