Why would you want a player that fails at county 2 level to be in the Zim side anyway? If he can't make it there, he wouldn't make any impact at international cricket
You do realise that Muzarabani failed at domestic level in England, could barely get in the second team.

He is now Zimbabwe’s best bowler.

If the talent is there, there is potential.
But we don’t know if Blessing is the real deal yet because he hasn’t faced Aus/India/England/NZ/SA

He struggled against Bangladesh apart from the first session of Day 1. Likewise in the ODIs he did well with the new ball but was very pedestrian with the old one.

That said, he's still right up there with Jarvis and Chatara as the best ZIM seamer since Streak and might actually be better since Jarvis and Chatara were very average white ball bowlers.

domestic cricket in England is very weird. DIdnt Pujara and stuff go over there and fail? But then all of the guys who come into England`s first team turn out to be pretty mid too
