Profile

The first black cricketer and youngest-ever player to represent Zimbabwe at international level, Henry Olonga came back from being called for throwing in a Test in early 1995 and rebuilt his action completely. At full pace he was rated as the fastest bowler in the country but also one of the least accurate, with a tendency to bowl more no-balls and wides than most. He also had difficulties with injury. His ability as a strike bowler was shown in the 1998-99 tour of Pakistan when he ripped through the experienced Pakistan top-order to set up a win in the first Test.
