Rhys Bateman

Age: Just a pup (by our terms)

Specialisms:  Tight bowling. Speaking with a funny accent.  Might be a pinch-hitter but hasn’t yet survived long enough for us to find out.

Profile: Not much is known about the second Kiwi to don the Mallards colours but the early showings mark him out as a polished performer. (Kiwi – polish – try and keep up!)  Took a wicket with his first ball, which was nice.  Can also catch. Expect him to move on soon.

Favourite colour: All Black

Nickname: The other one
