Profile

Friday Kasteni is a left-handed aggressive top-order batsman with a fine technique who came into the limelight in April 2005 when at the age of 16 he scored an unbeaten century on his first-class debut for Midlands in a Logan Cup match at Kwekwe Sports Club. He is also good behind the stumps and played in that match as a wicketkeeper. He played like a veteran in that match to finish unbeaten on exactly 100. Kasteni was drafted into the Zimbabwe Under-19 team that took part in the Afro-Asia tournament in India late 2005. He made it into Zimbabwe Under-19 side that went to the 2006 Under-19 World Cup held in Sri Lanka, played in all Zimbabwe's five matches as they reached the last eight of that event.
