U19s Captain; Right-hand batsman; Right-arm slow bowler; Wicketkeeper
The son of Woody Loines, Kai has come through the junior ranks and, having helped out the Bs and Cs during 2015’s player shortage he was a regular in the C Team in 2016, frequently keeping wicket very effectively before moving into the Bs before becoming a regular A Team and Sunday cricketer. An agile fielder, his work behind the stumps has improved and his batting has really developed since his early junior days. He is now a solid top or middle-order batsman with a good range of shots. He was U15s and Young (U17) Player of the Year in 2017 when he scored 505 runs at an average of 21. Before going off to university Kai contributed well off-the-pitch as a Junior Coaching Assistant. This season, he has taken the captaincy of the U19s.
