Profile

Bryan Strang is a military-medium seamer who makes up for a lack of pace with nagging accuracy and in one-day cricket is a bowler who is hard to get away. He is not the a bowler who is going to empty the beer tent - he was once described as "the most boring bowler in the world". He plies his trade across the world, in club cricket in England and South Africa, as well as being a more than capable coach. A mercurial character and something of a maverick, his clashes with authority have been fairly frequent and in 2002 he moved to South Africa after growing weary of the deteriorating political situation in Zimbabwe. He was subsequently sidelined by a serious injury, but his comments that Zimbabwe should be barred from hosting World Cup matches on moral grounds alienated him from the Zimbabwe cricketing authorities. An attempted comeback in 2003-04 was thwarted when the ZCU extracted its revenge by banning him on political grounds.
