Brian Chari is an accomplished batter who has played 20 matches for Zimbabwe across the three formats. To date, he has 3 T20Is, 14 ODIs and 7 Tests, including the monumental victory against Bangladesh in Sylhet in early 2019.

Whilst he’s yet to set international cricket alight – boasting a career-best of 80, scored against Sri Lanka in the second home Test in November 2016, he has proved his worth at domestic level. Chari, who plays for the Tuskers Franchise, has churned out over 6,000 with 10 centuries across the three formats and averages 24, 31, and 26, respectively. However, his numbers have been on the rise in recent years – averaging high 30s and early 40s in red and white-ball cricket respectively since the 2016/17 season.

A batter of some pedigree – Chari was always destined for international cricket having starred for Zimbabwe Under-19s. He broke into first-class cricket in October 2011, whilst in his teens, and was rewarded with his Test debut against Bangladesh in November 2014. The following summer, he was named in the ODI side against Pakistan in October 2015.

He has, though, failed to cement his spot in both formats and faces stiff competition to retain his current slot at the top of the Zimbabwe order.

In a view to getting more cricket under his belt, the talented batter, who bowls handy off-spin, spent the 2019 season plying his trade in the UK. Playing for Bovey Tracey in the Devon Premier League, Chari struck 488 runs at 34.86 and pitched in with 13 wickets at 19.92, whilst also completing his UKCC level 2 coaching qualification.

The Zimbabwean international relished his maiden stint and is set on a return, this time to Denmark for the 2022 season.

Thereafter, the star opening bat is seeking a stint in Australia or New Zealand for the 2022/23 season.
