During the summer of 2014, a young cricket, Damien de Vos joined up with the Gary Kirsten Academy and attended the first 2 Day High Performance camp in Cape Town.
Over the next 6 months, working with Head Coach Ryan Cook, Damien took his game to new heights. He has an unbelievable work ethic and drive to be the best possible cricketer he can. Working on all aspects of his game, he turned himself into a genuine all-rounder and started to perform consistently.
All the hard work came together at the end of the 2014/2015 cricket season, when Damien went on tour to Sri Lanka. He ended up Man of the Series after consistent performances throughout the tournament with bat and ball and showed how a little bit of belief and a lot of hard work can take you places.
Head Coach Ryan Cook is excited to continue his work with Damien and believes that with the right attitude, the sky is the limit. Gary Kirsten Academy would like to congratulate Damien on his great results of late and hopefully we can assist in some small way in shaping the way forward.
