Ervine signs new contract

BY JOHN HUGHES

Sean Ervine, the powerful former Zimbabwe all-rounder, has signed a new three-year contract with Hampshire following an outstanding first season with the county in 2005.
And the Harare-born 23-year-old was fit to start the English season this week, despite knee rec


onstruction surgery in Australia sidelining him throughout the winter.
“The left knee is the one I land on when bowling and it now feels pretty good,” says Ervine, who is based in Perth, Australia between English cricket seasons. “I’ve been gradually stepping up the pace and couldn’t wait to get started.”
Ervine, who played five Tests and 42 one-day internationals for Zimbabwe before emigrating, recently spent 17 days back in his homeland. He stayed with his parents and two younger brothers at the family home north of Chinoyi.
