Waddington Mwayenga is a promising right-arm pace bowler whose potential was recognised at a young age, but he has yet fully to fulfil those early hopes. His father was groundsman at St John's College in Harare, and it was while hanging around here with his older brother Allan (a left-arm seamer) that coach Bill Flower, father of Andy and Grant, discovered his potential and arranged for a cricket scholarship for both boys to Vainona High School, and later St John's itself. He represented Zimbabwe at age group levels and in the Under-19 World Cup of 2002, where he took five for 21 in the match against Kenya. He had a traumatic ODI debut against a strong Pakistani team and struggled against India on his Test debut almost three years later. He does not move the ball much but relies mainly on accuracy and bowling a full length. He went to Worcestershire to play for their second team during the 2006 season.
