Waller confirms Irish ambitions
Nathan Waller has confirmed his Irish international aspirations stating he's not interested in representing Zimbabwe at the forthcoming T20 World Cup.
The 22 year-old Northern Knights all-rounder is currently back in Zimbabwe at present where he is contracted to play for Mashonaland Eagles as an overseas player.
He is due to return to Ireland in April where he has signed for CIYMS following a move from Lisburn ,where he played with his Zimbabwean colleague Craig Ervine in 2013.
Waller will this week be playing in an overseas player capacity in Twenty20 matches to assist in making up numbers for the Zimbabwe T20 World Cup team selection trials. His uncle Andy is the current Zimbabwean coach, and he's helping provide stern opposition for the trials.
Despite playing in these trial games, he has reaffirmed that he isn't available for Zimbabwean selection, and wishes to push his inclusion in representative and international cricket within Ireland.
Waller's four-year stand-out period lapsed last month, having played for Zimbabwe at the Under 19 World Cup in New Zealand.
It appears likely that following an expected resolution of their financial difficulties, that Zimbabwe Franchise cricket will commence after the trials and Waller will also be playing in these matches as an overseas player.
