Canada's 16-year old schoolboy Nitish Kumar today became the youngest cricketer to make his World Cup debut when he was drafted into the playing XI against Zimbabwe in a group match here.

Nicknamed 'Tendulkar', Nitish was born in May, 1994, four and half years after Sachin Tendulkar's international debut against Pakistan in 1989.

Interestingly, Nitish will open the innings with the oldest player of the World Cup, 40-year-old John Davison who is playing his third World Cup.

Canada now has the oldest and youngest player in the tournament with their difference of age being 24 years.

"The first time I saw Nitish was 10 years back when he was only six. I was amazed to see a six-year-old's control over his shots. Even at that age, he could hit pull shots and I felt he was a special talent," Davison, the team's best player had said about Nitish on the eve of the match.
