Domestic career

Ervine originally played for the Midlands cricket team in Zimbabwe.

Ervine was one of several cricketers in dispute with the Zimbabwe Cricket Union in 2004, and he left the country to play for Hampshire in England and for Western Australia. Ervine declared that he would not return to play for Zimbabwe and following excellent form for Hampshire from 2005, and some recent breakthroughs for Western Australia, Ervine announced that he would seek to qualify for either English or Australian international representation. Ervine currently holds an Irish passport and therefore does not count as an overseas player in English county cricket.

During the 2009 County Championship season Ervine scored 832 runs at an average of 41.60, making him Hampshires fourth highest run scorer in the competition. In the 2009 Friends Provident Trophy, Ervine scored his highest List-A score of 167* against Ireland. Ervine was later a member of Hampshires winning squad in the final as they defeated Sussex by 6 wickets.

In February 2010, Ervine returned to the Zimbabwean domestic circuit with the Southern Rocks. On debut against the Mid West Rhinos, Ervine made scores of 208 and 160; scores which were his two highest in first-class cricket. He scored 237* against Somerset for Hampshire coming in at number 7 in the order later in 2010.

International career

Ervine made his debut for Zimbabwe in October 2001 in a One Day International against England. He was member of the 2003 World Cup squad and an ever-present during the England tour later that year, he had begun to show signs that he was maturing into a genuine international player with his last three Test innings all half-centuries 53 against Australia, and 86 and 74 against Bangladesh.

He also played 42 one-day internationals, aggregating 698 runs at nearly 26, and taking 41 wickets. Arguably his best moment in international cricket came in the VB Series against India in 2003/04 when he struck a superb 100 and nearly pulled off an incredible run-chase at Adelaide Oval.


Ervines brother, Craig Ervine is also a Test cricketer who plays first-class cricket for Midlands, Southern Rocks. He is also brother-in-law for Shaun Marsh
