The first man to face a ball for Zimbabwe in Test cricket, Kevin Arnott's first innings - 40 off 176 balls against India at Harare in 1992-93 - said everything about a technically sound batsman who sold his wicket dearly. In one World Cup match against Pakistan in 1992, he made 7 off 61 balls. He played only four Tests, and in the second, against New Zealand at Bulawayo in 1992-93, became the second Zimbabwean to make a Test hundred, but his career was blighted by brittle fingers and he retired comparatively early to concentrate on business commitments. Educated at Prince Edward School, where Graeme Hick was his fag, he played most of his senior cricket for Old Hararians and was also an exceptionally good cover fielder. His father, Don, played for Rhodesia in the 1950s.
