Profile

A talented all-round sportsman, Craig Evans' career tells a story of a frustrating inability to turn potential into results at the top as a young man, a gradual drift into the fringes of selection, and a brief renaissance that, disappointingly, could not quite be turned into a World Cup farewell. A tall, strong, athletic figure, Evans was a scratch golfer and a rugby international for Zimbabwe, at fullback. Earmarked as a limited-overs specialist early in his career, he made his international debut at 22 in the solitary one-day game during India's inaugural visit in 1992, but it was not until 1996 that he made himself a regular in the one-day side, and he was part of Zimbabwe's squad for the World Cup that year.
