Monash Tigers leg spinner Wil Parker will become Victoria's fourth youngest first class debutant in the state's history as Victoria plays New South Wales at the SCG.
After Jake Fraser-McGurk became the third youngest debutant earlier in the season, Parker makes his way into the side in the absence of Jon Holland, who is sidelined with a finger injury.
It’s been a meteoric rise for the 17-year-old, who played in Victoria’s Under 19 Metro side at the Under 19 National Championships late last year and took 3-70 on his four-day Victorian Second XI debut two weeks ago.
Victoria’s Marsh Sheffield Shield fixture with New South Wales gets underway at 10.30am AEDT on Friday with a live stream of the match available at cricket.com.au.
