The 21-year-old fast bowler Blessing Muzarabani has made himself unavailable for Zimbabwe selection with immediate effect, opting instead to pursue his career options in England.
Muzarabani has played one Test, 18 one-day internationals and six Twenty20 internationals for Zimbabwe, taking 27 wickets across formats.
Though his career was in its infancy, he was seen as one of Zimbabwe’s brightest young prospects and played a key part in their ultimately unsuccessful Cricket World Cup Qualifier campaign.
“I wish my former team mates and Zimbabwe Cricket all the very best for the future,” said Muzarabani. “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.”
Zimbabwe’s next assignments are tours away to South Africa and Bangladesh scheduled for September-November. What Muzarabani’s new career options entail are as yet unclear.
