Mushfiqur Rahim Profile | Career Info, Records Biography
Chamunorwa Justice "Chamu" Chibhabha (born 9 September 1986) is a Zimbabwean cricketer who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm medium pace. In January 2020, Zimbabwe Cricket named him as the captain of Zimbabwe's One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) squads on an interim basis.
Chibhabha made his maiden first-class century at Harare against Sri Lanka A. The match was drawn, and he made 40 and 103. In his previous first-class match, against South Africa Academy, he made 98 before being run out.
Chibhabha made a duck on international debut, against New Zealand during the 2005–06 Videocon Tri–Series. Chibhabha has also played first class matches for Mashonaland, and earned a recall to the national side in April 2006, when the team toured West Indies. In the first ODI, he top scored with 55, but his six overs cost thirty runs, and Zimbabwe lost by five wickets.
Chibhabha showed excellent talent during the Indian tour of Zimbabwe in 2015. He was the highest run scorer in the twenty20 series and Zimbabwe won their first Twenty20 International against India. He top scored in this match with 67 and earned man of the match and man of the series as well.
In July 2016 he was named in Zimbabwe's Test squad for their series against New Zealand. On 28 July 2016 he made his Test debut for Zimbabwe against New Zealand. He played in the most ODIs for Zimbabwe before making his Test debut.
Chibhabha was the last batsman, and the only Zimbabwe player, to be out handled the ball in an international match, before that mode of dismissal was abolished in 2017.
