His 6 centuries helped make him only the 6th person to score 1000 league runs in a season, as well as taking 42 wickets, and steering the club to the last 8 in the county cup.
Dion was arrested for using a Zimbabwe Cricket sponsored car after the ZC board did not offer him a new contract. Dion's lawyer told the police that ZC did not pay Dion his outstanding match fees. It was revealed that Tatenda Taibu was also involved in the case. ZC owed both Dion and Tatenda $200,000 each in backpay. Tatenda told Associated Press that he would not give back the car until he had match fee outstandings paid to him fully. But the ZC Board said that the Ebrahim's payment is separate to the continued use of the ZC registered car. The problem remains unsolved.
