Another foreign based cricket player packs his bags from England County cricket and sets for the mother land Zimbabwe. Kyle Jarvis could not resist the temptation of home sweet home and the fast bowler has signed a contract with Zimbabwe Cricket to resume his international career. Following in the steps of Brendan Taylor , Kyle is relocating back home to sign to ZC to resume his international career.
“Kyle has had a few great years in county cricket and has been a consistent performer there, so we are very excited to have one of our Zimbabwean boys back, .He was desperate to come back and represent his country again in international cricket. His return bolsters our strength in terms of our grip and we are very happy to have Kyle back and I know he is happy to be coming back home.”Streak said. Lancashire County Cricket Club confirmed Jarvis was returning to Zimbabwe to play international cricket. The fast bowler asked and was granted permission to be released from his contract which was due to expire at the end of the next season to play international cricket for Zimbabwe, having already played eight Tests before joining Lancashire. Jarvis moved to Old Trafford in 2013 and has gone on to be the Club’s leading wicket taker in that time, taking 50 First Class wickets in both 2015 and 2016. This year, he’s taken 37 wickets at an average of just over 22 in the Specsavers County Championship.
Kyle took to the mic ,“I would like to thank Glen Chapple and the Club for releasing me, and I wish them well, in what is a hugely exciting time for Lancashire as a whole, both on the playing perspective and how they are to grow the game in the county.There is a fantastic group of players in the Lancashire changing room and I wish them all the very best of luck in the years ahead.” In 2015, Jarvis played an important role in the Lancashire side that won promotion back to Division One of the Specsavers County Championship and helped the Club win its maiden NatWest T20 Blast title. Lancashire Head Coach Glen Chapple said they respected Jarvis wish.
This comes in as good news to all cricket fans in Zimbabwe because this will help strengthen the national side , and take it back to its old winning ways.
