TEAMS

Adam Huckle, on his return to Zimbabwe after seemingly being lost to South Africa, established himself as a Test-class legspinner. His father played first-class cricket for Rhodesia in 1966-67, and Adam grew up in Zimbabwe, moving to South Africa to attend University. After initial success with Eastern Province, and selection for the South African Under-24 team in 1995, he returned to Zimbabwe in 1997 after losing his place in the Province team. His arrival in Zimbabwe sparked a return to bowling form and the start of a successful international career, taking five wickets in his first Test. An attacking bowler with well-flighted legbreaks and considerable turn, as well as a disguised googly, he tended to bowl more loose balls than his fellow spinners, but also beat the bat more often. He took a Test-best of 6 for 109 against New Zealand at Bulawayo in September 1997, and played in 19 one-day internationals, including the 1999 World Cup.
