Paul secured a two-year contract with Nottinghamshire, but his bowling was frustrated by home pitches prepared to suit the seamers, and his batting by their wasting him in the lower order. At the end of the season the county's new management decided to replace him with West Indian seamer Vasbert Drakes, and paid Paul out his contract.

Paul made a brief return to Test cricket; this time a finger injury trying to hold a fierce drive off his own bowling put an end to his comeback. Due to his continuing injuries he successfully asked ZCU to release him from his contract, but he remained available to play in Zimbabwe and was invited to play for Manicaland in the Logan Cup after doing a spell in television commentary on the Zimbabwe tour of India. He responded with his highest first-class score.
