Utseya is a talented all rounder of the Zimbabwe cricket team. He played the first match against Sri Lanka at the age of 19. Despite being given an extensive run in the side, he failed to make a mark with either bat or ball. Like many other players he was introduced to the game at Chipembere Primary School in the Harare township of Highfield and won a ZCU scholarship to Churchill High School. He played for Takashinga Sports Club first team since Form Two and made his first-class debut for Mashonaland A just before his 16th birthday, scoring a fifty in a tight situation in just his second match. In 2003-04 he was assigned to Manicaland to strengthen the regional side there, and was selected for the CFX Academy in 2004.
