Andy Pycroft was a high-class batsman, especially strong off the back foot, whose best days were behind him by the time Zimbabwe played their first Test in 1992-93. He played only three Tests before time and the demands of a young family brought his retirement. His first-class cricket was limited by Rhodesia/Zimbabwe's scant fixture list, but he made the most of the few opportunities that came his way. In 1991-92 he hammered 104 off 109 against an Australian B side that contained Shane Warne, Paul Reiffel and Steve Waugh. He captained Zimbabwe in two spells, but did not take to the job naturally, possibly being a little too blunt for the role. After retiring he moved into administration, managing the U-19 side, and becoming a selector and subsequently the head of the selectors. He became Zimbabwe's coach in 2001 but resigned during the 2003 World Cup citing a lack of communication with his fellow selectors. It was a warning of the issues which were to rip Zimbabwe cricket apart the following year.
