Cape Town - The rise of 19-year-old Wiaan Mulder has been sensational. 

This time, last year, he was in matric at St Stithians College in Johannesburg, and while the future was already bright for the then-SA Under-19 captain, he could not have predicted how quickly things would happen for him. 

On Sunday in East London, Mulder made his debut for the Proteas in a 200-run win over Bangladesh

He made just 2 with the bat before taking 1/32 (8) with the ball. 

It wasn't the most earth-shattering debut international cricket has ever seen, but the point is that Mulder is off the mark in Proteas colours. 

He joins the likes of Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo and Aiden Markram as the names emerging as the future of South African cricket, and his franchise coach Geoffrey Toyana was as proud as anyone to see him on the biggest stage on Sunday. 

Toyana, Mulder's coach at the Highveld Lions, took to Twitter so congratulate the teenager on his debut. 

Next up for the Proteas is a two-match T20I series against Bangladesh that will bring the curtain down on what has been a one-sided tour. 

Mulder, who is not part of the T20 squad, will now return to the Lions.
