Tatenda Taibu, the former Zimbabwe captain who walked away from the international game after he and his family were threatened by people with links to Zimbabwe cricket, has said that he will try to qualify for South Africa.
Taibu had played in Bangladesh and England since he quit last November, and, as reported by Cricinfo last week, he is now heading to South Africa where he is expected to sign for the Cape Cobras or the Warriors.
“I will never return to the Zimbabwe side and I want to play Test cricket. South Africa is the best option,” he told ‘The Times’. It would take Taibu four years to qualify, but he is only 23 and so time is on his side, and when he walked away from Zimbabwe he was considered to be their one international-standard player. Taibu played 24 Tests for Zimbabwe, 10 of them as captain.
