Curtis Campher takes the challenge of taking Ireland’s lead on the World T20 stage

Curtis Campher admits that he’s still used to playing in the relentless audacity of T20 cricket, but one day this weekend he will be one of the first on the Irish roster for the opening game of the T20 World Cup against the Netherlands in Abu Dhabi. Monday.

A South African with an Irish passport – his grandmother was a nurse in Londonderry – did not play an A-List T20 game until he debuted for the Irish Wolves in his home country in February last year. His 13th match and only his fourth international match will be at the World Cup.

“I’ve played a lot of T20 matches in club cricket and U-17, U-19 level but nothing higher than in South Africa,” he said in an exclusive interview with the Belfast Telegraph. “It’s fast and definitely out of my comfort zone, but it’s really nice to challenge myself.
