Zimbabwe seamer ends international career prematurely

Zimbabwe seamer Blessing Muzarabani has made himself unavailable for international cricket for the foreseeable future.

Opting to instead pursue career options in England, the 21-year-old Muzarabani will not play in the limited-overs and Test series in South Africa and Bangladesh later this year.

The talented right-armer played one Test, 18 ODIs and six Twenty20 Internationals since December 2017’s debut.

“I wish my former team-mates and Zimbabwe Cricket all the very best for the future. I have been honoured to represent my country, but feel this is an appropriate time for me to pursue other challenges both personally and professionally,” said Muzarabani.

Fellow Zimbabweans Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis previously undertook similar arrangements, but have since returned to international cricket.
