Masakanda is an interesting guy. There’s clearly a gap in the batting dept up front and he’s not making himself available and he would definitely be in the mix. I can only think he’s pissed someone off or the coach doesn’t like him. He’s got the ability to make the grade, certainly for Zim. He plays too many shots, but for sure he can play.
He gets around as well which is not easy on a Zim passport. He will have learnt a bit over the last year or so. It’s going to be an interesting couple of months with u19 and the Sri Lankans.

2014: UAE

Malcolm Lake Moved to the UK where he has played for Oxford University and Daberyshire 2nds. Studying to become a lawyer, plays club cricket in London.

Deven Bell Played club cricket in the Somerset league in the UK before returning home to play a few first class matches for the Tuskers (took a five wicket haul in his only first class game). Now pursuing a career as a Strength and conditioning Coach and Sport coach at Wellington School in the UK.

Ryan Burl Originally went to University in the UK before dropping out to return to play cricket in Zimbabwe, played a number of seasons in the UK before finally getting his chance in the national side.Has played in the BPL and the Afghanistan Premier League[/b]

Herbert Chikomba Played 11 first class games for the Eagles before moving to South Africa to coach in a private school. Has recently been part of Alistair Campbell's Academy but not selected for the Rangers squad to take part in the Logan Cup. Is named in the Rhinos squad but has not played this season.

Kieran Geyle Went to University of Southampton in the UK, played club cricket and a few games for Hampshire 2nds. Now lives in London where he plays club cricket.

Joylord Gumbie Played a few seasons for the Eagles where he showed promise scoring 168* in the Logan Cup, did not play in the 2018.2019 season but now with the Mountaineers and hit 63 to continue his fine form shown in this seasons Vigne Cup where he is currently the leading run scorer.

Shoun Handirisi Has played 26 first class games without making a great impression. Averages below 20 in all formats. Has done nothing to show that he is worthy of a place in the domestic system.

Cuthbert Musoko Broke onto the domestic scene but has not played in the last couple of years. Think he was the top wicket taker in the Vinge Cup last year. Played some club cricket in the UK.

Luke Jongwe The first of this group to play international cricket. Drifted away from the game due to drugs and alcohol problems, trying to force his way back into the domestic game at the moment, has played a number of seasons with some success in the UK.

Dylan Hondo Has been one of the standout performers in club cricket in recent years without ever getting a chance with one of the franchises. Has finally been given a chance this seasons with the Rangers under Gary Brent. Will be interesting to see how he goes.

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe Took a while to be given a chance in the domestic game as he spent several seasons on the bench of a strong and experienced Mountaineers squad. Went on the Rising Stars tour to the UK where he worked hard on his game. Scored heavily in the Rising Starts one and only season in first class cricket and continued his good form for the Eagles where he is making good progress under the guidance of Stuart Matsikenyeri. Will look to add to his three ODI caps in the near future.

Charles Kunje Has made a good fist of applying his trade in the domestic game with two centuries to date for the Tuskers. Was the 2nd highest run scorer in the 2016/17 season with 415 runs @ 41.50. His has built up some good UK experience, firstly for Meigle CC, in 2015 season in the North East Championship in Scotland – scoring 513 runs and scalping 29 wickets avg @ 12.24 and in 2018, with Ivybridge CC. One of the better batsman on the domestic circuit but is not in great shape fitness wise.

Patrick Mambo A very talented cricketer who put his cricket career on hold to go and study in South Africa. Has returned to Zimbabwe and has put forward some promising performances for the Eagles. One to watch out for with bat and ball.

Tarisai Musakanda Has played all around the world, scoring runs in club cricket in the UK and Australia, expect him to return and play for Zimbabwe in the near future.

Mkhululi Nyathi A fringe player at the Rhinos without ever breaking through. Went on the Rising Stars tour. Is listed as part of the Rhinos squad for the Logan Cup but has not made an appearance to date.
Excellent stuff Zimfan1

Any chance of doing the same for some of the other Zim U 19 editions?

Luke Jongwe, was some one who used to bowl at 140+ in flat tracks of UAE against Afghanistan in that 2015 series, followed by excellent hiitter down the order, his game was developing till Makhaya Ntini started neglecting him for disciplinary issues, now he is struggling both with bat & ball.


A better care would have been taken when he was rising, but it didnt happen.

Jongwe was a tremendous talent, probably not too late to develop him either. He was the golden boy for years and as usual that did him no favors.
We’re missing everything from our cricket, List A is only one piece of the many missing pieces.
U19 are playing today. I’m trying to find a live scorecard.
