Casual cricket fans can be forgiven for thinking that he is a youngster who is only just stepping up into the senior ranks.
The reality is, the Oudtshoorn-born player has been around the block for a while now.
Aged 27, Tokka, as he is known, made his first-class debut for South Western Districts back in 2013 already.
A move to the Eastern Cape in 2018 proved to be the springboard for his career, as he excelled for the provincial side before cracking the nod for the Warriors.
The right-arm fast-medium bowler performed so well for the Eastern Cape franchise that he got called up to the SA A side, playing against the likes of England’s Ben Stokes and Joe Root in December last year.
The Solidarity Cup is another step in the right direction of Stuurman, and I for one will be hoping that he raises a few eyebrows.
Having never met the player, he is already an inspiration to me and should be to the rest of you out there.
His Twitter page says he is a “Cricketer, with a desire to make it happen.”
No matter his age, Stuurman is on his way to “make it happen”.
So what’s holding you back?
