Bowling style Right-arm medium

- Test debut Bangladesh v Zimbabwe at Chittagong (MAA) - Jan 6-10, 2005
- ODI debut Zimbabwe v England at Harare - Nov 28, 2004
- He is among the clutch of players given their chance at international level because of the exodus of the rebels
- A tall seam bowler, he hits the pitch hard and can get good away movement - but as with many young quick bowlers consistency is his major problem
- He made his ODI debut against England in October 2004 and caused the England top-order a few anxious moments
- His early Test appearances did not set the world alight, and he lost his place after taking 3 for 343 in four matches
-Not content with being stumped twice in an afternoon (for a pair) in the first Test against New Zealand in August 2005, he followed up by being run out for 3 in the second match, as he strolled down the pitch to congratulate his team-mate on reaching his half-century
