Profile

Ed Rainsford was a tall right-arm seamer with the reputation of being one of the quickest bowlers in Zimbabwe. He won early selection for the national squad against Sri Lanka in 2004 when the 'rebel' players withdrew. He played five ODIs during that dispute, but never really made an impression. Zimbabwe's continuing player drain led to his recall to national colours in 2006. He developed an excellent yorker, which worked best with left-handers as his stock delivery swung the ball into them.
