Bio

Unlike some of his teammates, Solomon Mire is no stranger to Australian soil. After leading Zimbabwe in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2008, Mire moved to Victoria seeking opportunities to hone his cricket skills.

After a stint in country Victoria, Mire set his sights on Premier Cricket in Melbourne, where he played for Carlton and Essendon while also spending time in Darwin during the winter.

In late 2013, he was named a community rookie for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League and he was elevated to the senior list after an injury to Renegades batsman Daniel Harris.

Following these opportunities, Mire returned to Zimbabwe in 2014, where he earned his first one-day international call-up against Bangladesh in November.

Mire made an immediate impact, scoring two fifties and taking three wickets in his first five ODI appearances, putting him in line for a maiden ICC Cricket World Cup appearance.
