Flower is Zimbabwe's one true world-class cricketer.

He made his debut in the 1992 World Cup and is now his country's most experienced one-day campaigner with more than 200 caps.

A century as an opener in that first appearance marked him out as a player to watch at an early age.

It was more than eight years before he recorded a second ton - also against Sri Lanka - which came in his now more accustomed role in the middle order.

Flower is strong all around the wicket and has the ability to improvise and adapt to situations with remarkable ease.

He has scored Zimbabwe's highest one-day score with 145 in the recent ICC Champions Trophy and has figured in three of the country's one-day partnership records.
