I saw the videos of his wickets

Looked like he had some good rhythm and the wickets were good balls, not sure about the quality of the opposition ?

In his latest match for Northamptonshire, against Glamorgan, Blessing took 2 for 63 off 14 overs in the first innings and 3 for 67 off 12 overs in the 2nd innings. In the 2nd innings his 3 wickets were all in the top six and Glamorgan had subsided to 60 for 8 but then the Glamorgan number 10 started swinging for everything, and took Muzarabani for 47 off 3 overs! The report said it was a surprise the captain opted for Muzarabani against an aggressive tail ender as he'd already come in for some punishment against just such a player in the first innings. In those 3 punishing overs it seems Muzarabani just kept bowling length balls and the no.10 de lange just kept clearing his front leg and swinging him for legside boundaries.

Released from his kolpak contract a year early, no chance of him being kept on as an overseas player next season

He really should've taken the overseas player option when he could've

Good to see Muzrabani back in Zimbabwean colours, the end of this Kolpak rule might well see some talent returning to Zimbabwe and South Africa and more importantly in future we won't see such talent drain to a larger extent. I hope.

I’m more excited to see if South Africa can get back some of their talent, like Simon Harmer. He’s been sensational at Essex
