I take an interest in Zimbabwean cricket if only because I like to support the underdog. I know Ben Slater (Derbyshire) is playing for Southern Rocks this season, Jaik Mickleburgh (Essex) is playing for Mid West Rhinos, Dan Hodgson (Yorkshire) and Mark Pettini (Essex) are playing for Mountaineers.
It'll be interesting to see whether Sean Williams can break back into the national side. I'm also keeping an eye on Glen Querl's progress this season who could potentially be a decent pace bowler in years to come. It's unfortunate Gary Ballance has shunned Zimbabwe in favour for trying to break into the English side. He would have given Zimbabwe's fragile batting order some much needed strength.
