TEAMS

Mark Burmester was a keen rather than naturally able player, but he made the most of his talent as a right-arm medium-pace bowler, and on his day was a capable batsmen who on occasion opened the innings. He won international recognition when called into the Zimbabwe squad for the 1992 World Cup, playing four matches and dismissing Sachin Tendulkar and Dean Jones. He was subsequently chosen to play in Zimbabwe's inaugural Test (against India) during which he became the first Zimbabwean to take a Test wicket (that of Ravi Shastri). He ended with 3 for 78 but didn't add to his tally in two more outings against New Zealand. A back injury then meant he didn't bowl for almost two seasons and when he returned he had faded from the selectors' minds.
