There are at least two reasons why you should keep this name in mind. The first is because South Africa under-19 coach and former international wicketkeeper Ray Jennings says so. Jennings, who coached Purnell at the last youth World Cup in Malaysia in March this year, has an impressive record of recognising young players who will make it in the cut-throat business and those who, despite their obvious talent, lack the decisive urge. The second reason is pedigree. The last under-19 captain at the youth cup went on to become South Africa's young- est captain ever. Like Graeme Smith, who was the tournament's best batsman, Purnell was the hero with the ball, finishing as the tournament's highest wicket taker, with 18 victims from six matches.
