TEENAGE opener Matthew Renshaw will become Queensland's 10th Sheffield Shield debutant this season when he lines up against South Australia at the Gabba on Friday.
The 18-year-old, a member of Australia's U19 squad, is coming off scores of 150 for Toombul and 175 for the Queensland Academy of Sport last week against Victoria in Melbourne.
Renshaw will be 18 years and 350 days on Friday, making him the youngest player to make his first class debut for Queensland since Alister McDermott (18 years and five months) played against the West Indies in November 2009.
Born in Middlesbrough in England, the tall left-hander will replace all-rounder Michael Phillipson.
Meanwhile, Tasmania added former Victorian Michael Hill and young gun Caleb Jewell to its squad to take on Victoria in Alice Springs after opening batsman Ed Cowan said he was returning to New South Wales to try to resurrect his Test career.
