Waller knock on selectors' door

HARARE - Last week, Zimbabwe Cricket selectors named four uncapped players in a 24-men training squad for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

Of the four, perhaps the surprise inclusion was Mashonaland Eagles all-rounder Nathan Waller, who has however been playing relatively well for his franchise in the domestic league.

Young Nathan represented Zimbabwe at the Under-19 World Cup in 2010 in New Zealand.

Nathan Waller hopes to follow in the steps of his uncle, Andrew, and cousin, Malcolm, who have both represented their country at international level.

Though he does not bowl on a regular basis, he considers himself an all-rounder like Shane Watson.

Waller loves to play the sweep shot and is training to be a physical trainer.

Born in Harare on November 19, 1991, Waller made his first-class debut for a Zimbabwe XI side against the Netherlands back in 2010 at Amstelveen in Amsterdam.

He was educated at St John’s College in Harare, where he was born and raised 21 years ago. - Sports Writer
