Debut shortly after 1999 World Cup, then rowed with Zimbabwe establishment and chose to suspend his career.

He tried several business ventures before resuming cricket in 2002. Nov, rolled his jeep after a head-on collision with another car, thrown out of vehicle, over other car and into ditch, narrowly escaping serious injury — took 5-79 in 1st test v Pakistan a week later.
