James Ross: 'we were thrown in to the deep end . . .' Picture: Steve Cox
Custom byline text:
Be it scuttling away errant deliveries for four or lashing them clear for six, the opening batsman of Kinross Cricket Club is forever conscious of the parameters of play.
The demarkations always dictate on the field but the 21-year-old finds himself drawing distinctions in other aspects of his life, too. Sometimes he presents himself as the club captain, as well as a coach and area development officer. At other times he is a recording musician with two professional albums to his name. Then there is the further separation in his familial relations. During the interview, Ross refers on several occasions to "Kirsteen", the cricket development officer for Perth and Kinross and, effectively, his employer. However, it is only upon further scrutiny that he reveals that Kirsteen is, in fact, also his mother.
