Profile

Tall and athletic, Andy Waller's career suffered as a result of a spate of injuries and the demands of tending his tobacco farm. A popular character, he was an entertaining batsman, an outstanding fielder, and a more than useful - if occasional - medium-pace bowler. A regular in the Zimbabwe one-day side from the mid 1980s - he appeared in the 1987, 1992 and 1996 World Cups - his Test debut didn't come until he was 37. This was largely because of his reputation as something of a slogger, a tag he disproved with a patient 50 in his first Test against England in 1996-97. He retained his place for the second Test, which turned out to be his last first-class appearance. He played another seven ODIs before retiring at the end of the season.
