Northants' Elton Chigumbura relishing chance to impress


Chigumbura wants to enjoy Northants spell

Northants all-rounder Elton Chigumbura says he is fulfilling a dream by playing in English cricket.

The 24-year-old Zimbabwean joins Northants having captained his country in their home tri-series against Sri Lanka and India.

"It was one of my dreams to play county cricket and finally I'm here," Chigumbura told BBC Look East.

"It's come at the right time. I want to show the counties and the world that the guys in Zimbabwe are competitive."

He added: "I want to improve my cricket and have more success with the club.

"[Head coach] David Capel says that I should express myself and just play what I know. He's helped me with some technical stuff, and I'm looking forward to working with him.

"Hopefully I won't have to change my style too much. I can play my normal game and enjoy it."
