Anthony Ireland is a tall fast-medium seamer from the Midlands area of Zimbabwe. After some opportunities at junior levels, Ireland decided to improve his game in club cricket in England, and after a player rebellion of 2004 was given more opportunities to perform in Logan Cup cricket, and was included in the national team squad the following year. He struggled on his first tour, to West Indies, breaking his left hand in practice at the start of the programme. When he recovered, he struggled with his length and tended to bowl too short, which proved fatal against batsmen as adept with the pull as most West Indians. He secured a more regular place at the end of 2006 and was included in Zimbabwe's World Cup squad, although he made only one appearance.
