Ed Rainsford is a right-arm seam bowler and has won early selection for the Zimbabwe national squad against Sri Lanka in 2004 when the 'rebel' players withdrew. He played five ODIs during that dispute but failed to make an impression. He came into limelight in 2006 and developed into a wonderful yorker, which works best with left-handers as his stock delivery swings the ball into them.
Rainsford grew up in the Midlands town of Kadoma, and despite attending a minor cricket-playing junior school showed little interest in the game until he was 11 when his father, who had played at school himself, coached him and fired his enthusiasm. After five years of dedication in the first team at Jameson High in Kadoma, he was so 'keen on cricket that he would go to Kwekwe, 45 miles away, to practice with the National League club team there. This led to selection for Midlands in the Logan Cup, as well as the Under-19 World Cup team and the CFX Academy in 2004.
