Elton Chigumbura was fast-tracked into the Test team at a young age due to the exodus of the leading white players. He is a good fast bowler, perhaps the fastest in Zimbabwe with Anthony Ireland now playing for Gloustershire, peaking at approximately 135kmph. He is also a very good lower middle order batsman, and can really turn it on should the situation warrant it. He has now become an automatic selection in the Zimbabwe team, and was even selected for the Africa XI in 2007, where he performed very well. He captains Northerns province in the Logan Cup.

Club (2007): Takashinga
