Sydney, April 28: Sixteen-year-old batsman Jason Sangha, who is of Indian origin, has become the youngest player to be given a New South Wales (NSW) contract as he was handed a rookie deal for the 2016-17 season.

Arjun ir, another Indian-origin player who made his debut last season at the age of 17, has been given a full contract. Sangha rose through the junior ranks last summer and was selected in the New South Wales Under-15 Schoolboys team before being picked for the Cricket Australia Invitation outfits for the U-17 and U-19 tiol championships.

Sangha was later roped into the tiol under-19 team in January and scored a brilliant 102 on his youth One-Day debut against Pakistan in Dubai.

“New South Wales has a long tradition of backing young talent and we are delighted to be able to bring Jason Sangha, Arjun ir, Liam Hatcher and Chris Green into the Blues squad this summer,” Cricket New South Wales CEO Andrew Jones was quoted as saying by espncricinfo on Thursday. “Along with Mickey Edwards, Jonte Pattison and Henry Thornton, these rookies have a tremendous amount of potential and we look forward to seeing them develop under the guidance of the Blues coaching staff and senior players.” IANS
