He was sharp when I faced him and I reckon he's a yard quicker now

Got a bit about him too, the type you want in a fast bowler. Our guys are far too nice

Good strong simple action, looks way better than most of the guys playing for the national side.

I'm not sure if it's coaching or if these guys don't get the same food/ weights training, but most of the Zim boys have IMO 'weak actions'

They run up to the crease with no purpose and their actions are slow and gentle, there's no one bustling to the crease or bending their backs. No one hits the deck hard accept for Chatara sometimes and Mpofu on the rare occasion where he gets fired up.

Even guys like Mumba & Blessing who I think have loads of potential, they look like they're just going through their paces when they bowl.

Yes he looks decent. The best thing that can happen is for him to dominate in the NPL with the national team guys gone and then have a good Logan Cup when they are back. You just have to be willing to put in 1 good year and you can crack the team. Our fast bowlers need competition.

Jarvis had more of a Glenn McGrath action but now he kind of slows up and bends his back as he bowls. Slightly different action
