Seventeen-year-old Brampton-born Parmveer
Kharoud, known simply as Parm by his teammates,
is a student of the Heart Lake Secondary School.
Parmveer plays his Canadian domestic cricket as a
member of the Derek Perera led Ontario Cricket
Academy (OCA).

As one the OCA’s three representatives on the Canadian
2022 U19 World Cup squad, Sahil Badin and Siddh Lad
being the other two, Parameter’s playing role will be that
of a bowler.

Not unlike many of his teammates, who collectively
must now arguably be the most ambitious Canadian
National U19 squad ever assembled for an U19 World
Cup, Parmveer’s objective for the forthcoming 2022
tournament is simply to win the coveted championship.
Never mind that being a feat never before accomplished
by any Canadian team in the World Cup’s illustrious
history. Or for that matter, with Canada scheduled
to play its Preliminary Round matches part of the
tournaments Group A which also includes defending
champions Bangladesh, England and the UAE, the harsh
reality that they will very likely be hard pressed to even
progress to the competition’s next round of playoff
matches.

Undaunted as he is by such realities, Parmveer’s stated
goal will be to play well enough as to help Canada win its
matches. Parmveer, who credits his initial interest in and
active involvement with cricket directly to South Africa’s
outstanding former fast bowler Dale Steyn, has already
duplicated one his legendary feats. Like Steyn, he now
can boast of having taken a hat-trick as one of his most
outstanding accomplishments. Needless to say Steyn is
also both the international cricketer he admires as his
all-time favorite as well as the bowler whose action he
likens most to his own.
