Heath Streak is an all-rounder of immense talent who, for a period of time, almost single handedly led the Zimbabwe bowling attack.
Streak has the ability to bowl outswing at a lively pace with good control and was the first ever Zimbabwean to reach 100 Test wickets.
His batting abilities are also of the highest calibre with one Test hundred and 10 fifties to his name.
He was appointed captain of Zimbabwe in 2000, but found that the responsibilities - and tension with the ZCU board over pay and quotas - affected his form and he resigned.
He was reappointed to the role in 2002 but again found himself in the spotlight as the Zimbabwe side disintegrated in the wake of the country's internal turmoil and in 2004 he quit the international cricket scene all together.
Streak is a fluent Ndebele speaker and hails from a ranching family near Bulawayo.
He signed for Warwickshire in 2004 and took 13 wickets on his Championship debut before picking up a stomach muscle problem that hampered him throughout the rest of the season.
International calls and injuries again restricted his appearances in 2005 but he did manage to collect 26 Championship wickets in eight matches.
Retired from international cricket in 2005 to take up a two-year contract with Warwickshire as their captain for 2006 and 2007.
