Profile

Like so many in the new generation of Zimbabwe players, Prosper Utseya was first introduced to the game at Chipembere Primary School in the Harare township of Highfield, and won a ZCU scholarship to Churchill High School. A promising talent at school level, he made his first-class debut - opening the batting in the first innings - for Mashonaland A at the age of 15. He scored a fifty in a tight situation in just his second Logan Cup match, against Manicaland, a day before his 16th birthday, and soon moved into the Under-19 and Zimbabwe A sides, with some notable bowling performances along the way. In 2004, Utseya was unexpectedly thrust into the Zimbabwe national team against Sri Lanka at the age of 19 when the rebel players withdrew. Later that year, he was moved to Manicaland to strengthen the provincial side there, and was selected for the CFX Academy. Growing in experience, he took his first first-class five-wicket haul - 5 for 32 - against Manicaland in October of that year, and continued to hold a place in a weakened national side, taking up the captaincy from Terry Duffin in 2006.
