Born into a cricketing family - his uncle, father and brother are all cricketers - Peter Moor has held a lifelong fascination for the game, taking it up aged just five. A product of the prestigious St John's College, Moor holds the record for the school's highest individual score, 214 not out. His talent as a wicket-keeper batsman was recognised young, and he was picked for the Zimbabwe Under-19 side as a 16 year old and represented them at two youth World Cups, in 2008 and 2010.
Moor initially struggled to nail down a regular place in domestic franchise cricket, but he started to find his way in the 2013-14 season, having been mentored and coached by Grant Flower. An ODI debut against Bangladesh on Zimbabwe's ill-fated tour in November 2014 followed, and Moor forced his way into the Test side two years later, cracking 71 against New Zealand in his very first innings.
Moor plied his trade in English and Irish club cricket as a young player but, fiercely patriotic and imbued with a genuine fondness for his home country, an extended overseas gig was never considered an option. He has developed into one of the more consistent batsmen on the domestic circuit, and also a potential leader of the national side: in February 2019 he was named vice-captain of Zimbabwe.
