THE TYRO

Max Bryant (Bris­bane Heat)

ABC Cricket - - BBL -

Bat­ter, right-hand bat

Bris­bane al­ready has the pow­er­house duo of Bren­dan McCul­lum and Chris Lynn at the top of the order – and adding this big-hit­ting 19-year-old verges on ma­jor overkill. Dur­ing the do­mes­tic one-day se­ries in Septem­ber, Bryant clubbed the fastest half-cen­tury by a Queens­land player, tak­ing 23 balls and even­tu­ally reap­ing 71 (68 of those runs came from bound­aries!) He’s been touted as one of the ris­ing young bats­men cur­rently in the sys­tem, an ex­cel­lent ath­lete who put his pur­suits as a rugby league half to the side for his cricket. Lynn summed it up: “He’s an ex­cit­ing young player.”
