Re­turn of crick­eters to the fold will ben­e­fit Chevrons

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

EDI­TOR — The mooted re­turn of pace bowler Kyle Jarvis and star bats­man Bren­dan Tay­lor to the Chevrons fold should ben­e­fit our na­tional cricket team.

The two play­ers, who play for Not­ting­ham and Lan­cashire in the English county, are for­mer Zim­babwe in­ter­na­tion­als who should add both skill and ex­pe­ri­ence to Heath Streak’s squad.

Tay­lor made his name for our Chevrons when he cap­tained the side with dis­tinc­tion and class as he is rightly re­garded as one of the finest bats­man in our Chevrons’ his­tory.

He is fondly re­mem­bered for his hero­ics against New Zealand in 2011 when he hit back-to-back One Day In­ter­na­tional cen­turies.

What a great feat!

That was be­fore he capped his il­lus­tri­ous in­ter­na­tional ca­reer with an­other fine cen­tury in 2015 against heavy­weights In­dia be­fore join­ing Not­ting­hamshire in the English county.

In that re­gard, Tay­lor’s re­mark­able record speaks vol­umes as he also holds the record for hav­ing scored the most num­ber of ODI hun­dreds for Zim­babwe.

What a valu­able as­set he will be if he re-joins our Chevrons!

On the other hand, Jarvis made an in­stant state­ment on his de­but against Kenya in an ICC In­ter­na­tional Cup at Kwekwe Sports Club, tak­ing two wick­ets on his de­but.

As such their re­turn should boost and ben­e­fit our Chevrons in ex­pe­ri­ence and class. Felix Zonke.
