Spencer is delighted to announce the signing of Zimbabwe Women’s international Modester Mupachikwa for their 2022 season.
Mupachikwa is an accomplished wicketkeeper who bats in the top order for Zimbabwe Women (known as the Lady Chevrons). Since her international debut in 2011, she has become an integral member of the national side.
Over the past decade, she has been one of Zimbabwe’s chief run-scorers, regularly topping the tournament run charts, including the most recent ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifiers (167 runs at 55.66).
A few seasons prior, she was again the third leading T20 World Cup Qualifiers run-scorer (125 runs at 31.25), helping guide her side to the Africa Region title.
Throughout her career, which started at the age of 12 with the Zimbabwe Under-19 Ladies team, she has played against notable sides including India, Ireland, South Africa, and Bangladesh. She was picked in a Global Development Squad which toured Australia and played various matches against the Women’s Big Bash sides.
More recently, she was named as the best batter of Zimbabwe’s domestic league, hitting 194 runs at 67.59.
The talented batter, who also keeps wicket, and has been known to bowl seam-up over the years (boasts a career best 8 wicket haul against the Border Cricket Association), currently sits 7th and 8th in the Women’s World rankings for the highest runs in an innings by a wicket-keeper (75*), and highest career T20 batting average (32.33), respectively.
Set for Surrey role
Mupachikwa is looking to capitalise on her current form and is set to travel to England to play and coach for South London club Spencer in 2022.
