Player Profile

The younger brother of World Cup deserter Sean, Craig's progress has been slow but steady to the extent that he made his international debut at the relatively late age (by Zimbabwean standards) of 24. He made an immediate impression, hitting an unbeaten 67 as Zimbabwe chased down India's 285 in Bulawayo last May. Although that remains his only half-century thus far, his temperament and technique have continually impressed and he has gradually made the number five position his own in a middle order containing few stable performers. Most importantly, the left-hander has proven himself to be a good player of spin, and his influence will be crucial to Zimbabwe's success in India and Sri Lanka.
