I played ten Tests for Zimbabwe in seven years. A new ball bowler, I played one test against England and took no wickets.


Well its going to be one of four potential players I can think of, because hardly any Zimbabweans have played that many tests as a paceman.

Henry Olonga - But he was around for the 2003 debacle, and Im sure he debuted in the Pakistan victory in 95/96.
Pommie Mbangwa - Another who's career ended with the 2003 black armband. Cant be him
Eddo Brandes - Did he only play 10 times? He certainly played in the mid 90s drawn series away.
Brain (was it David Brain)… not exactly sure of his career time frame, left arm quick. Must have played around that many times, and in that time frame.

Ill go the last. If not him then Brandes. If not either, then im screwed.

Regarded as somewhat a childhood prodigy, I debuted at the end of the 1980s for Notts at the tender age of 17

Nope.

I was a destructive hitter of the ball who rained 6s throughout my career; something I apparently inherited from my father, who also had the same reputation for smashing the ball far.
