Kyle Jarvis, the 24-year-old Zimbabwean medium-pacer who quit international cricket to pursue a county career at Lancashire due to pay disputes with Zimbabwe Cricket, has found support in former Test cricketers Trevor Gripper and Bryan Strang.
Gripper told the Times of India, “It’s definitely a sad day for Zimbabwe cricket as it lost another promising talent. While players are on strike over payment issues another player exodus, if players’ needs are not paid heed to.”
Strang said, “It’s natural in this age to want to secure your future. Things come and go. Everything changes, but I wouldn’t blame anyone for this.”
Jarvis played eight Tests, 24 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and nine T20 internationals for Zimbabwe. The announcement came days before Zimbabwe host Pakistan for two Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is.
