Wicketkeeper batsman Tatenda was the youngest man ever to be an international cricket captain, at the age of just 18, and played in 28 Tests and 150 One Day Internationals for Zimbabwe before his retirement in 2012. He has a Test best score of 153 and an ODI best of 107*.

Tatenda now manages the Rising Stars Zimbabwe Cricket Academy, who are touring England this summer and who will play Myerscough next month.

A spokesperson said: ‘’It was a great morning working with Myerscough’s students and coaches. We’re looking forward to our matches & hope we can link up again in future!’’
