TEAMS

Brighton Watambwa burst onto the international scene in 2001 as a fast bowler, wayward but full of raw aggression and promise. In six Tests he did enough to show that he was one of Zimbabwe's rising stars, but off the field he clashed with the authorities, refusing to toe the line with the board's increasing politicisation. He was punished with an offer of a contract he considered derisory, and in 2002 he decided to turn his back on Zimbabwe and move to America where he soon found a place at the University of Miami. He continued playing cricket in Florida, and is likely to feature in the US team once his four-year qualification period ends.
