William Bosisto is part of an assembly line of emerging talent that is developing in the west. The 19 year old has also been pencilled in as a possible future captain of the state side after an impressive showing at the under-19 World Cup.
The right-handed batsman has shown maturity beyond his years throughout his buddying career.
The under-19 World Cup has been the catalyst for many of the world’s elite cricketers. If Bosisto wants to be a future Australian star, then he certainly aced his audition.
Bosisto played in six matches throughout the tournament; all of which were held in Townsville. He amassed 276 runs, and incredibly was only dismissed once.
Bosisto worked his way into the tournament, starting with 35*, 7* and 36*. However, when the big games arrived, Bosisto turned it up a notch.
He smashed 71* against Bangladesh, before “failing” against South Africa when he fell for 40. He made a valiant 87* in the Final against India, but it was all in vain as the tourists won with 14 balls remaining.
On the back of his heroic efforts with the bat, Bosisto was named Player of the Tournament.
Unfortunately, he didn’t get a chance to demonstrate his ability against Victoria, after being run out for a duck by Will Sheridan.
Bosisto finished the 2012/13 season playing for Western Australia’s under-23 side. He ended the year on a high with a fighting 75 against Victoria.
