Sean Michael Ervine (born 6 December 1982) is a Zimbabwean cricketer. Ervine is a left-handed batsman who bowls right-arm medium pace.

Domestic career[edit]

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.[1] Ervine currently holds an Irish passport and therefore does not count as an overseas player in English county cricket.[2]

During the 2009 County Championship season Ervine scored 832 runs at an average of 41.60, making him Hampshire's fourth highest run scorer in the competition.[3][4] In the 2009 Friends Provident Trophy, Ervine scored his highest List-A score of 167* against Ireland. Ervine was later a member of Hampshire's 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.[5] He scored 237* against Somerset for Hampshire coming in at number 7 in the order later in 2010.

International career[edit]

Ervine made his debut for Zimbabwe in October 2001 in a One Day International against England.


Ervine's brother, Craig Ervine has also played first-class cricket for Midlands, Southern Rocks and Zimbabwe.
