Ben Kynman with David MillerJersey opening bowler Ben Kynman has had a dream start to his 10 week trip to Cape Town. Following a good bowling performance in his first game for Ottoman CC on Saturday, Kynman was invited to bowl to the South African T-20 squad in the nets at Newlands on Tuesday as they prepared for their T-20 game against Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

After bowling well alongside Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel in the morning practice session, Kynman was then invited to bowl to the Sri Lankan T-20 batters in their afternoon practice session.

From Farmers Field, Jersey to Newlands, Cape Town, Kynman is on a steep learning curve which will benefit the Jersey team when he returns to the Island in April.
