Profile

Andy Whittall, cousin of the better-known Guy, had the unusual distinction of representing his country overseas before playing first-class cricket at home. He attended Cambridge University and immediately found a place in the University team, with John Crawley as his first captain, and later captained the side himself. Primarily an offspinner, and with so many other prominent allrounders in the Zimbabwe team, he usually batted low down the order, but his ability with the bat tended to be neglected (his first-class best was 91* for Cambridge University). Although a very tall man (his nickname is 'Structure'), he was also a fine middle-distance fielder. His bowling was steady and he improved his accuracy, but rarely troubled the best batsmen , so his main role was to tie up an end in one-day cricket. He lost his place soon after the 1999 World Cup and after that opted to pursue a successful career in sports marketing.
