Want to be the best all-rounder in world cricket: Barbados’ Bosch

South Africa’s 19-year-old Corbin Bosch had burst onto the international cricket scene with some superb performances in the U19 Men’s World Cup in Dubai, picking up four wickets in the final to win the Player of the Match award, while also ensuring the junior Proteas a memorable title win.

Now, eight years on, Corbin finds himself in the best form with both bat and ball. The 28-year-old celebrated his birthday, and opened up about his experience in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2022.

“It has been a great season for sure because the team has been on a winning run. I have been focused on contributing to the team as much as I can, and at the end of the day, if the team is winning, I’m a happy man,” he said.

Corbin has already accumulated 151 runs in 5 games along with 2 half centuries for Barbados Royals.

Speaking on his aims, Corbin said, “I think my job depends on what the coach wants me to do. I don’t mind going up the order or finishing games. The other major role for me is to bowl and take as many wickets and to be as economical as possible and just put the team in the best position that I can.”

“The wait was definitely a long one. But it’s one of those where I was waiting for an opportunity, whether it be in the IPL or in the CPL, and I was just grateful enough that I could be a part of such a fantastic setup in the IPL as well.”

“Rajasthan Royals not only gave me a platform that I could possibly succeed moving forward, but also gave me an opportunity to be here at the CPL, which I happily took with both hands and hopefully I can be a part of this setup and the Royals franchise moving forward because it’s such a fantastic atmosphere to be a part of, so I’m hoping there’s many more games to come,” the all-rounder added.

He said that playing with seasoned players in the Barbados Royals squad is a great experience. “I think they’re all fantastic individuals who have a lot of experience of playing in various conditions around the world. I’m just trying to pick everyone’s brains and make sure I’m improving as well.”

“My goal is to keep playing my best cricket. Our international team is really starting to look like a formidable cricket side, and it’s something that I aspire to be a part of. I know I’ve got a lot of hard work ahead of me and it’s not an easy task, but it’s still one of the dreams that I have.

“Ideally, I want to be the best bowler in the world. That’s my goal, and to be the best all-rounder in the world. I still feel like I have a lot of my best cricket ahead of me and I’ve got a lot of hard work to do as well, and those are just my goals – to be the best in the world.”

“I know it will come from performances in various competitions around the world, and I’m grateful to the Royals that they’ve shown so much faith in me. My game has grown massively over the past 12 months, and I feel it’s only the start of my journey,” he added further.
