Profile

Forster Mutizwa is a wicketkeeper-batsman who, given Zimbabwe's paucity of players, can consider himself unlucky in having to wait so long for his international call-up. Good form in 2006-07 and 2007-08, including Logan Cup hundreds in both, finally attracted the attention of the selectors and he was included in the squad to tour Bangladesh. Mutizwa could not find his way into a starting XI on that tour, and eventually made his Zimbabwe debut against Kenya in January 2009. He impressed on that tour, and in the return series which followed, racking up 61 in the fourth game at Nairobi, and consecutive scores of 79 and 55 in Harare. Mutizwa carried his good form into the 2009-10 edition of the Logan Cup, passing 1,000 runs in the competition at an average of over 60 and making a career-best 190 for Mashonaland Eagles in their win over Mid West Rhinos.
