PROFILE

A well organised left-handed batsman with an elegant streak, Craig Ervine's determination has never been in doubt since overcoming reconstructive surgery on his right hand in his early teens. When a freak accident in his family's living room saw him fall on broken glass the doctors considered amputation, but instead Ervine has recovered to become a sturdy middle-order batsman. He spent time in England and Ireland playing club cricket after school, before returning to Zimbabwe following the launch of the new franchise system. In 2009-10 he was the leading run-scorer for the Southern Rocks and forced his way into the national side for the World Twenty20. A one-day debut followed in which he hit 67 not out off 60 balls to see Zimbabwe to victory over India in Bulawayo, and he also impressed during a subsequent tour of South Africa. He was part of the side as Zimbabwe returned to Test cricket the following year, but a lean run saw him left out of the home and away series against New Zealand. His brother, Sean, is an accomplished allrounder who played five Tests for Zimbabwe before throwing in his lot with Heath Streak's rebels. He considered returning to the Zimbabwe fold ahead of the 2011 World Cup before opting to remain with Hampshire as a local player instead.
