Kyle Jarvis, a tall and strong 28-year-old fast bowler, is set to resume international career for Zimbabwe as he has decided to end current Kolpak deal with Lancashire County Cricket Club.
Jarvis made his international debut back in 2011. Two years later he left Zimbabwe for Lancashire to gain financial security. Zimbabwe Cricket was under financial crisis at that time and players were not paid. The pacer became club’s one of valuable players.
Jarvis took 67 wickets across formats for Zimbabwe. With more matches waiting for Zimbabwe and the World Cup Qualifier coming up, Jarvis can be Zimbabwe’s main man in bowling attack.
“I have absolutely loved my time at Lancashire over the last four years,” the Zimbabwean said.
“It’s a very special place and I have made some fantastic friends here. I am immensely proud to have played a part in the history of this great club. I would like to thank everyone that for making me feel part of it.”
Before Jarvis, former captain Brendan Taylor had also announced his return to Zimbabwe side. He is likely to take part in two-match Test series against West Indies. He had left his country after the 2015 World Cup to join Nottinghamshire. He returned back after playing three county seasons.
