Brydon Carse is another one of those South African-born cricketers who took the Kolpak route and made use of his British ancestors to play cricket in England. Born in Port Elizabeth, Carse is a fast-bowling all-rounder and he has impressed with his all-round abilities in the domestic circuit. His ability to generate pace and clock around 90 mph has caught the attention of many. But his career has been quite injury-prone and he has constantly spent time on the sidelines, rehabbing.

In 2014, Carse played T20 games for Eastern Province in South Africa before taking the Kolpak route. He signed a development contract with Durham in 2016 and made his first-class debut for them at the start of the English summer that year. He took 17 scalps in the County Championship season in 2016 and he was rewarded with a two-year contract.

However, a knee injury ruled him out of the entire County season in 2018. Carse bounced back strongly in 2019. He took 10 wickets in five innings in his debut 50-over season and also returned with 35 scalps in the County season that year. That was also the year when Carse completed his British residency qualification and qualified to play for England as well.

In 2020, the England selectors named him in the 55-man training group (behind closed doors) post the first COVID-19 lockdown in the lead-up to the Test series against West Indies and ODI series against Ireland. Earlier this year, Carse made his ODI debut against Pakistan and played all three games in the series after the entire (original) England squad went into isolation due to an outburst of COVID-19 among the players and staff.

Carse was picked in the England Lions squad as well for the tour of Australia this year but a knee injury has ruled him out. This also rules him out of his maiden BBL stint as he was due to play for Perth Scorchers in the 11th edition of the BBL.

International Cricket

Carse made his international debut in an ODI against Pakistan earlier this year. In his third ODI, he took a five-wicket haul as he returned with figures of 5/61. Overall, he has played three ODIs and he has taken six wickets. With the bat, he has scores of 31 and 12 not out in the two innings he has batted in ODI cricket.
