Can you imagine a future when, as a last resort, Australia played a one day international against China without recalling any of its players from the Indian Premier League?

Philippe has a strong cricket pedigree - his mum played for Western Australia and his dad for the state 2nd XI - and fell in love with the game early. Steven Smith saw something special when he helped lure Philippe to Sydney for the Big Bash, where the youngster led the Sixers to glory with 52 off 29 balls in last season's final. A deal with the Royal Challengers Bangalore and talk of an Australia call-up point to his eye-catching batting style, plus he has an added string to his bow as a gloveman. - Valkerie Baynes (Source: www.thecricketmonthly.com)

Kyle Jamieson (New Zealand) - At 6'8", Jamieson can prove quite nightmarish for any batsmen with the awkward bounce he gets. He had a dream Test debut against India at Christchurch earlier this year with both bat and ball. And, there has been no turning back for this 25-year-old since then. In the four Test matches he has played so far, he has picked up 20 wickets with an impressive average of 14 and a stunning strike-rate of 33. He is certainly a bowler to watch for in the future and has proved to be a great asset for the Kiwis.

Expert eye: "He's got some terrific skill already, and genuine pace for an U-19 kid. He gathers pace off the wicket, which tells me he's got a very good wrist. He snaps through his wrist, which is a bit like Pat Cummins does, very, very effectively. They are the type of bowlers that bother the batsmen, because they gather pace off the wicket, they [get the ball to] climb off the wicket into the bat." - Tom Moody, commentator at the U-19 World Cup (Source: www.thecricketmonthly.com)
