Player Profile

A batsman of real promise who is best at the top of the order, Ahmedabad,-born Patel is the great hope for the future of Canadian cricket. The 19-year-old marked himself out as a rising star when he made an unbeaten 88 off just 61 deliveries against Ireland in February of last year. His one-day debut had come the previous year against Kenya, although he initially struggled to find a role in the team as he was constantly moved up and down the order. A return to his favoured opening position saw him strike better form at the World Cricket League Division One tournament in Netherlands in 2010, while he can also send down some useful left-arm off-spin.
