Tendai 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 compliment 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.

The Zimbabwean international is now set to play down under having signed with St. Patrick's for their 2022/23 Cricket Albury-Wodonga campaign. Therefore, he is eager to return to Northern Shores for what will be his fifth UK stint in 2023.
