Kudakwashe Macheka is a talented young seam-bowler from Zimbabwe. A capable, Right-handed lower order Batsman, his main discipline is his Right-arm Medium/Fast seam up bowling with good control and a genuine knack for picking up wickets. Without a glittering youth career to speak of, Kuda has just continued to develop in his own time although he did represent the Zimbabwe U19 side in the trials for the 2020 ICC Under 19 World Cup squad.

Kuda was pulled in to the U19 trials off the back of good club form for the Rangers in 2018-19, bagging 12 wickets in 3 games @ 5.83. Despite picking up 5 wickets @ 18.00 in 3 games for the ZIM U19 side, he couldn’t quite make the final cut for the trip to South Africa. He did however, make his first professional appearances around the same time, making his First Class and List A debuts in Dec 19/Jan 20 respectively.

Since his debut, Kuda has bagged 28 wickets in 16 games and looks to be a player that has stocks heading in the right direction. As he continues to seek constant improvement, Kuda is now looking to head to the UK in 2022 for his first season abroad and will be a good pick up for any UK club seeking a talented young seamer
