Profile

Tall, well-built and known as Chunks to his mates, Travis Friend is a bowler of genuine pace who first played for Zimbabwe in a one-day international at the age of 19, despite only changing from legspin two years earlier. But he picked up a stress fracture in the back, perhaps due to over-bowling in New Zealand and India in 2000-01. He recovered, and quickly made an impact in the Test arena, taking 5 for 31 as Bangladesh were skittled for 107 on the first day of the Test series in November 2001. A useful batsman who drives well off the front foot, Friend is a modest and approachable individual.
