In life we all have dreams but mostly remain dreams, and in some cases motivational speakers have made lots and lots of cash trying to make people believe that dreams can do come real in life.
In the case of one Dion Myers, his dream is about to come true. In 2020, when he was leading the Zimbabwe Under 19s in a World Cup campaign in SA, he spoke to the Herald about his dream.
“I’m looking forward to play for the national team. I have said that after this World Cup I am hoping that on a personal level I do perform and in the end help the team win matches.”
With Sean Williams and Craig Ervine missing the solitary Test against Bangladesh starting today, chances are high that Dion Myers will receive his Test Cap batting in the middle order.
He is a frontrunner to debut today, for he has grabbed the few chances he got in the long format and impressed the selectors by scoring big. He recently scored a brilliant 96 against top quality SA A side in Harare and everyone is hoping he will be able to replicate the form.
Dion Myers learnt cricket in the family’s backyard practising with his older brother Jack who unfortunately didn’t pursue cricket post Under 19s. Dion has played for Zimbabwe age groups from Under 19s through to captaining the Under 19s at a World Cup.
There was and still there is fear that Dion will leave Zimbabwe Cricket for University in England and may never come back as he is good enough to excite England. A Cap today will mean Zimbabwe will have secured the vastly talented lad.
