An allround sportsman, he also plays tennis, squash and hockey and was in 1997 Falcon 1st XI, Hockey captain. His hobbies include shooting and fishing. Neil is an ex-Academy player, left-hand opening bat and wicketkeeper. He played with the Academy in 1998-99 and played for Manicaland until he joined the rebel players in 2004. His ability is perhaps limited by international standards, but he is a great-hearted player who rarely surrenders his wicket easily. He is a heavy scorer against all but the best bowling, and made his Test debut as an opening batsman for Zimbabwe against New Zealand in 2004-05 in the infamous two-day drubbing at Harare Sports Club.
