The Zimbabwe cricket captain, Brendan Taylor has signed to play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) with Chittagong Kings.
Taylor’s agent said that he had signed for Brendan to join the Chittagong Kings for the last three games and the finals in the BPL. He went on to say that “The deal was negotiated directly by us with the owner and CEO, Sameer Quader Chowdhury, of the Chittagong Kings.”
Taylor is not new to playing for an overseas team as he also recently played in New Zealand’s domestic Twenty20 league for Wellington, where he scored career-best 101.
In his short career, Taylor has already played 54 Twenty20s and averages a respectable 31 at a very healthy strike-rate of 122.04.
Chittagong are currently in third place in the BPL, two behind joint leaders, Khulna Royal Bengals and Duronto Rajshahi.
Zimbabwe Cricket Books
Amazon, have a bunch of Zim related cricket books, including "Blood, Sweat And Treason" by Henry Olonga, “A History of the Rhodesia and Zimbabwe National Sides” by Jonty Winch who traces the history of cricket in this country (Zimbabwe) from the first recorded game played in 1890, through two World Wars and a guerilla war, to the comparative peace of post-independence and eventual world recognition in the 1980s when Zimbabwe was able to send a side to England to take part in the I.C.C. Trophy competition which it won.
There is also the Autobiography of another great Zimbabwean cricket coach Duncan Fletcher “Behind the Shades”
