Son of former first-class cricketer Albert Costayne Hayden Walsh, Hayden Walsh Junior is another during a long line of leg-break bowlers in its redemption years. All of 18 years aged , Walsh went through the trauma of his father’s early demise during a swimming bath accident, and put within the hard yards to form his way into the domestic scene within the 2011/12 season.
In his third match for the Leewards Islands, Walsh trumped the likes of Rayad Emrit and Jason Mohammed and was beginning to become a threat within the domestic circuit. However, his numbers were never up to the mark for the national set-up where Devendra Bishoo had established himself as a capable leg-spinner and an honest lower-order batsman.
In the 2018 edition of the Caribbean Premier League, he was drafted in as a replacement for the Pakistan players who were forced to go away for national duty and made his debut for the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots under the leadership of Chris Gayle. Still rather young at 26, Walsh junior has the potential to interrupt through into the national side in with the load of performances, and therefore the CPL may be a fantastic platform to showcase his talents and catch the attention of the selectors.
