Profile

The son of former Zimbabwe batsman Andy Waller, Malcolm is a middle-order batsman and offspinner who is trying to forge a cricketing career of his own. He first represented Zimbabwe at Under-15 level in 2000 before re-surfacing for Mashonaland in the Faithwear one-day competition in 2004. His appearances were sporadic until he finally established himself in 2007-08, though his performances - apart from in Twenty20 cricket - were fairly ordinary. But good club form with Harare Sports Club in the Vigne Cup helped win him selection for the Bangladesh tour in 2008-09. His most notable performance for Zimbabwe to date was an aggressive 63 in the thumping win over Kenya in 2008-09 - a series that Zimbabwe dominated from start to finish. He overshadowed that knock during New Zealand's tour of Zimbabwe in October-November 2011, when he slammed 99 not out off 74 balls to help Zimbabwe chase down a record 329 runs in a dramatic last-over finish. That performance earned him a call-up to the Test team for the one-off Test that followed. His cousin, Nathan Waller, has represented Zimbabwe Under-19.
