10. Solomon Mire
Solomon Mire is a solid batting talent to emerge from Zimbabwe. The right-hander is a powerful striker of the cricket ball, and heavily favors the leg-side. He made his debut in 2014 but couldn’t convert his domestic form onto the big stage until the recent Sri Lankan ODI series. The Harare-born batsman made contributions of 112 (96 balls), 43 (30 balls) and 43 (32 balls) in the games Zimbabwe won in their historical series win over the hosts, Sri Lanka. The brand of cricket that this opener plays, makes him an X-factor. He takes the attack to the bowlers and the kind of shots he played against the likes of Malinga and Kulasekara upfront, exhibited the potential of this African batsman.
