After his selection was announced Munashe commented:

“It’s an honour to have been selected for the England squad this year. Being the only Leicester student to be picked for the squad in the 3 years I’ve been here as well as being part of a handful of students from the University to have been selected for International teams makes it even more special.

Hopefully this will help Team Leicester grow and attract students by demonstrating there are pathways through to representative sport”

Munashe will now prepare for his first squad training weekend in early March whilst continuing with his academic commitments.
