Simon Mugava (23) is a promising off-spin bowling all-rounder who represented Zimbabwe Under-19s and has to date, played 53 domestic matches for the Mid West Rhino's across all three formats. He has starred, particularly with the ball taking 68 wickets - 48 at 29.41 at first-class level, but also shown ability with the bat, scoring two first-class half-centuries.

Mugava made his first-class debut against the Mountaineers in March 2010, taking a wicket off his first ball. His rise to first-class cricket was on the back of a successful Under-19 career for Zimbabwe comprising 18 matches including the ICC Under-19 World Cup in January 2010 in New Zealand.

The young Zimbabwean spent the 2012 season playing league cricket in England, for Berkshire-based side Eversley. He was a resounding success, topping the division 2A run and wicket charts and helping his side to promotion. In 15 matches, he scored 644 runs at 53.67 and took 46 wickets at in the Thames Valley Cricket League.

Mugava returned to the UK last season, helping his Westcliffe-on-Sea side to promotion with 378 runs at 37.80 (HS. 132*) along with 22 wickets at 25.32 (BB. 5-72). He is now currently seeking a new club for the 2014 season, is UK based and currently applying for a visa extention for the 2014 season.
