What so special about him that I am writing a whole post about him?? Once you finish reading this you’ll know.
So to begin with what age does a person start playing cricket if he wants to take it as his profession?? may be 14-15 at school or at most 16-18 in his high school but not the case with Nannes. He was a pro skier for Australia and participated in world cup.
But then his interest changed and he decided to take cricket as his next profession. At an age of 27-28 he started playing cricket, played for middlesex (English county) and then IPL.
And yeah he has been doing wonders for the DD’s in the IPL2. However, he was not selected for the Australian 20-20 side, instead he was chosen for Netherlands team in Oct 2008 and will soon be seen in the team color.
Wish him luck and to DD’s too. 🙂
