Tinashe Chimbambo is an experienced Zimbabwean wicket-keeper batter playing for the Mountaineers in domestic cricket.

The gloveman has been on the circuit for well over a decade following his List A debut as a fresh-faced 16-year-old. He made his first-class debut 2 years later (2008), after his successful ICC Under-19 World Cup campaign. During the tournament in Malaysia, Chimbambo was one of only three Zimbabweans to play in all six of the side's matches, along with Kyle Jarvis and Prince Masvaure, and only Dan Landman and Solomon Mire scored more runs than him.

Over the next decade, appearances were sporadic for Chimbambo, and despite 15-years on the domestic scene, he has only played 31 matches. That said, his absence was, in most part, due to his studies which saw him live in South Africa whilst completing his Honours Degree in Managing Information Systems from the University of Western Cape.

He also spent time in England, playing for Harrow St. Mary’s (2013), and Lansdown (2014). Chimbambo was a sensation for the latter, hitting 1,508 runs at 68.55 in his 33 matches for the club. In Saturday League cricket alone, these numbers were even better, scoring 777 runs at 86.33 with 3 centuries, all with a strike rate of 95.37 in the Bristol and North Somerset Division of the West of England Premier League.

The Zimbabwean star then ventured back to the UK in 2022 and enjoyed yet another barnstorming stint, this time for Compton and Chandlers Ford. He ripped up the Hampshire League hitting 951 runs at 95.10 with 4 centuries to help the club secure promotion to the Southern Premier League. An enthusiastic coach, he was also a prominent figure at the club throughout the summer.

Chimbambo is now contemplating his options for a UK return in 2023, and given his exploits last summer will no doubt be in high demand.
