David Mutendera was one of the first cricketers from the black townships in Harare to play international cricket, thanks to the development scheme run by the Zimbabwe Cricket Union. He was a member of the first intake of students at the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy in 1999. He made his ODI debut in 1999-2000 and played his solitary Test the following season. David is almost two metres tall and strongly built, his height enabling him to gain unexpected lift from the pitch, and he bowls mainly off-cutters. Injury problems and a faulty action have severely impeded his progress recently.
