He has faced up against the likes of Shoaib Akhtar, Brett Lee and Muttiah Muralitharan.
But now former Zimbabwean international and Eastlake skipper Vusi Sibanda has his eyes set on getting his side off the mark in their Cricket ACT season.
Eastlake face Weston Creek Molonglo side in a Douglas Cup clash at Kingston Oval on Saturday, another challenge the 14 Test-capped batman is relishing.
"There is no doubt that Weston Creek are one of the best sides in the Canberra competition," Sibanda said.
"It is a good challenge, it will be the second time I have played against them. When you look at John Rogers and [Joe] Slater... they have got good experience with them.

"I always like a challenge and I think it will match-up with my Eastlake side. The guys are always up for a task, I am positive it will be a good fight from us. It is something I am looking forward to.
Sibanda lined up in 127 one-day internationals and featured in the 2007 Zimbabwean Twenty20 World Cup team which defeated Australia.
He first came into the side in 2004 under the leadership of Heath Streak and played alongside Grant Flower.
And while the 37-year-old missed out on playing alongside Grant's brother Andy who is arguably Zimbabwe's greatest ever cricketer, he says their father Bill was a huge influence on his career.
"I had a fair bit to do with him [Andy], because his father [Bill] coached me and a bunch of younger guys coming from my town," Sibanda said.
"He had a lot to do with getting us to where we are today from a very young age."
Sibanda's time with the national team intertwined with issues within the team that kept Zimbabwe from playing a Test match for six years.
"It was very difficult going through that phase where we did not get to play test matches," Sibanda said.
"It was unfortunate being a young side [at the time] and wanting to play more cricket and you are being starved of cricket.
"And you are still looking to improve and without any games it becomes very difficult. On a personal note I don't think I achieved or got to the greater highs I wanted to, it was full of ups and down to be honest.
"I always feel I could have done a lot more, so I wouldn't say I was happy with how it finished off. But it is what it is, and you get to a point where you have to make way for other people to come in.
"I enjoy giving back to cricket, it is something that I will do for as long as I am able to do."
