    Disappointing. Reckon he could have been one of Zimbabwe's best fast bowlers (not that that's saying much). Can't blame him though given the pay, instability etc from playing for Zimbabwe vs County cricket.

    Can't blame the boy, really.

    I do think it's maybe time for the ICC to have another look at what constitutes "domestic" players tho. If a chap has a British or EU passport (as I'm imagining Jarvis must) I don't think we'd be losing too much by letting them play over here as non-overseas players whilst remaining available for their countries of birth and/or upbringing.

    Works ok in football and, to a lesser extent, rugby too.

    I suspect Williams and Cremer won't be far behind. I think Keegan Meth has also quit although can't confirm it.

    But is that the issue? I read it that he makes more money in county cricket and misc t20's than he would playing for Zimbabwe (if he gets paid) so he doesn't want to be available for Zimbabwe duties because it means he misses out on CC and t20 payments while he's away playing for Zim.

    Interesting decision as Im not convinced he will cut it in County cricket. May be asking to be let back in to the Zim setup in 2-3 years.

    Even if he doesn't make it in county cricket, his prospects of living in the UK and finding a career outside cricket would be better than returning to Zimbabwe.
