TEAMS

First selected for the Zimbabwe Test series in 1996 after showing good form in the Academy XI games, he made the WC squad largely because he could bowl line and length. Tall, getting in close to the stumps, with a very still head at delivery, and getting movement each way, he had the potential to be a miserly bowler for many seasons to come. However his inexperience was amply demonstrated in his first Test when he failed to control the ball during the reverse swing overs. He admitted that he had "never seen anything like this before" and had to go to the nets to work it out. Given a chance under pressure in the Zimbabwe ODI series, bowling with the new ball and at the death, he acquitted himself better than his raw figures would indicate in one game, but was very wayward in another conceding a number of wides. Some of these were very marginal calls and as a result of this his confidence took a battering. Eventually discarded by the Rixon regime in 1996-7, he failed to bounce back and drifted out of the game.
