Honest Ziwira is a promising seamer from Zimbabwe. A right-arm Fast/Medium bowler, he is not a noted batsman but has shown encouraging improvement in his seam-bowling over his first two seasons in professional cricket domestically.

Honest was a member of the 2017 touring party for the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy’s UK Tour. The Tatenda Taibu-led, Rising Stars as they were known, based themselves in the North-West and played against various County and club sides throughout the summer. Honest would go on to make his first class debut in October 2017 on his return home from England.

After a steady first season of First Class, 8 wickets @ 50 (Best of 3-84) in 2017-18, Honest put in a hard-core off season in the 2018 winter. His improvement was evident immediately, picking up 11 wickets @ 22.54 with a best of 5-62 against the Mid West Rhinos.

Seeking his first stint in the UK as a professional, Honest will be a good pick up for a club seeking a genuine new ball threat for next summer.
