Epsom is delighted to confirm the re-signing of Tendai Chisoro for their 2023 Surrey Championship season.

Chisoro is a Zimbabwean international all-rounder who featured most recently for his country in the Test series against the touring Pakistanis (April-May 2021).

The left-arm spinner earned a Test re-call following his domestic exploits for the Southern Rocks in 2020/21. He topped the wicket charts (18 wickets at 17.77), helping his side to the Logan Cup title.

Chisoro had previously made his Test debut against the West Indies in 2017, having already featured for Zimbabwe in both white-ball formats a few years earlier (debut’s in October 2015).

In his 21 ODI and 14 T20I matches, Chisoro boasts impressive bowling figures, with 24 wickets at 28.50, and 12 wickets at 30.66, respectively.

These numbers complement his domestic statistics, which are equally impressive. Over 300 wickets across the three formats, and nearly 4,000 runs with a century (112), and 9 fifties.

His numbers have been on the rise in recent years. Season tallies of 137 runs at 15.22 / 31 wickets at 26.51 (2017/18), 214 runs at 20.71 / 13 wickets at 23.53 (2018/19), 253 runs at 28.11 / 28 wickets at 17.21 (2019/20), and 199 runs at 19.90 / 21 wickets at 25.71 (2020/21).

He has also been a stand-out performer abroad, with 4 UK league stints. Chisoro enjoyed two stints with Midlands-based club Fordhouses (2015, 2017), hitting 1,238 runs at 25.27, alongside 79 wickets at 18.44. He then starred in the Surrey Championship for Epsom, belting 730 runs at 66.36, plus his usual complement of poles (37 wickets at 15.62). Last summer (2022), he continued to dominate playing in the East of Scotland Cricket Association for Kelso (751 runs at 44.18 and 34 wickets at 12.50)

The Zimbabwean international, who is currently starring for St. Patrick’s in Australia’s Cricket Albury-Wodonga competition, is now set for another Surrey Championship stint in 2023 having re-signed with Epsom. Thereafter, Chisoro will head back down-under having also re-signed with St. Patrick’s for their 2023/24 campaign.
