Born: 3/5/83
Team: Manicaland
ODI debut: 23/11/02
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm off-spin bowler

A graduate of Zimbabwe's CFX Academy and regular member of the A team, Matsikenyeri found the step-up to senior international status a big one against Pakistan.

Asked to open the batting in his debut appearance in Bulawayo, he was dismissed by Wasim Akram for one and lost his place after one further appearance.

Given his chance in the World Cup, however, when Brian Murphy was forced to withdraw after damaging a hamstring during the Super Six phase.

Still developing as both batsman and off-spin bowler, he is seen as one for the future.

Played in last year's Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand where he helped Zimbabwe win the Plate Championship.
