Profile

A hard-working offspinner from Bulawayo, John Nyumbu has had plenty of responsibility as Matabeleland Tuskers' frontline spinner in recent seasons but shouldered the load well and is developing into a very useful slow bowler. With Zimbabwe's currently brimful spin-bowling stocks, however, he still has plenty to do before he is pushing for national selection.
