Andre Odendaal

Post by zimlover »

Does anyone know much about him, is he quick or is he Military medium, does he look like a good prospect for Playing for Zimbabwe?

I always get excited when I seen Left-arm quick, Reminds me of Brian Vitori.

We need someone sensible to replace the Don

Does any one know anything about him

Yes I do. He's about 80mph max but he moves the ball quite late into the right handers. Certainly a better selection than Akram

Has a weird career path so far, Played in U19 WC in 2012 and since then he went AWOL and now came back after 9 years.

Could be a left wing selection for the T20's.

Been playing cricket in Australia, he is only playing in Zimbabwe because of the covid restrictions not allowing him to travel to Australia for the season. Doubt he will be around for long unless the selectors give him a clear indication that he is in their plans.

Worth a look if he can show he wants to stick around. No point if not.

Seen him bowl and he's nippy. Didn't know he could bat

So on Cricinfo, he has only played one professional first class game, he must be good if he can just turn up after 9 years and get a game , late alone just play when he wants. If he is waiting for Covid restrictions to be lifted he might as well consider a career with ZC.

I wonder what level he plays in Australia?

Why would he not play international cricket for Zimbabwe but league cricket in Australia? Playing internationals for Zim would make him more likely to play as an overseas player in County cricket then as a league cricketer in Australia
