The former Zimbabwe left-arm seamer Bryan Strang has bounced back into the picture after he was named in a 17-member Zimbabwe A side to play four limited-overs matches in Namibia.

Strang, 32, has not played for Zimbabwe since 2001 because of a career-threatening injury. His bid to make a first-class return hit a brick wall last year when Zimbabwe Cricket banned him after he said that Zimbabwe should have not hosted World Cup matches in 2003 on moral grounds.

Strang has played a number of matches for Old Hararians in the national league this season, and is one of the leading wicket-takers despite having lost pace and bowling off a shortened run-up.

He played 26 Tests and 49 ODIs for Zimbabwe between 1995 and 2001, taking 56 Test wickets. His last appearance was against West Indies at Harare Sports Club in July 2001. Between 1995 and 2001, Strang formed a useful opening bowling partnership with Heath Streak.
