Zimbabwe profiles
HEATH STREAK
Captain, right-arm fast-medium bowler; right-hand batsman

FACTFILE
Heath Streak
DOB: 16.3.1974
Team: Matabeleland
Test debut: v Pakistan, Karachi 1993
ODI debut: v South Africa, Chinnaswamy 1993

Now in his second spell as captain, Streak is by far and away Zimbabwe's most successful bowler in Test cricket.

Begins the tour needing 20 more victims to reach the 200 mark, but has lost some of the nip which enabled him to trouble the best at the start of his international career.

Took 6-87 in the Lord's Test four years ago, figures which he has never managed to better, and also gained experience of English conditions during a spell in county cricket with Hampshire.

A capable lower order batsman, especially in the one-day game as he showed with an innings of 72 not out against New Zealand during the World Cup.
