Profile

Tawanda Mupariwa's short, stocky build and pleasant demeanour don't suggest a great quick bowling talent, yet in 2008 he became the fastest Zimbabwe bowler to 50 ODI wickets, getting there in 28 games - nine fewer than Eddo Brandes. But pace isn't Mupariwa's main weapon; a medium pacer who lost a yard after a knee injury in his late 20s, he relies mainly on accuracy, an ability to swing and seam the new ball, and a deceptive slower delivery. Zimbabwe relied upon Mupariwa when their pace-bowling stocks were at an all-time low in the years following the premature retirements of the 'rebel' players, but despite his enviable one-day credentials, he fell out of favour as Zimbabwe searched for genuine express pace bowlers in the lead-up to the return to Test cricket in 2011.
