23-year-old Kyle Verreynne is a fine wicket-keeper batsman who has made a name for himself while playing for the Cape Cobras in the South African domestic T20 competition. Verreynee showed his class at a young age and was awarded a first-class debut at the tender age of 18. Ever since his debut, the youngster has played quite a few substantial knocks including two in international cricket. With an impressive average of more than 50, Verreynne is considered as one for the future.
Studying at the Wynberg Boy’s High School which had produced future international cricketers like Jacques Kallis and Richard Levi. The youngster was part of the South African squad in the 2016 U 19 World Cup and ended the tournament as the 2nd highest run-getter for the Proteas having made his first-class debut a year earlier.
Growing up idolizing Mr 360 AB de Villiers, Verreynne is an ideal modern-day batsman who can hit in different directions of the ground. Like many other batsmen, Verreynne considers that hitting a good straight drive to start of an innings keeps him in good shape and sync which helps him get the confidence of building long innings.
On the back of some consistent performances for the Cape Cobras in South African domestic cricket, Verreynne was awarded a national call-up for the ODI series against Australia just prior to the COVID lockdown. The youngster played for the Cape Town Blitz in the Mzansi Super League and scored a half-century straight away but had to give his place up to Quinton de Kock after he returned to the XI.
