Arguably Zimbabwe’s greatest ever player, Andy Flower shone through the 1990s and early 2000s. A batter of the highest calibre, Flower averaged 51.54 across 63 Tests and 35.34 across 213 ODI, all while excelling behind the stumps as a keeper.
The first player from Zimbabwe to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, Andy Flower excelled with the bat and gloves across his 11 years in international cricket.
Debuting for Zimbabwe in 1992, Flower went on to score 4794 runs at 51.54 in Test cricket and 6786 at 35.34 in ODIs while completing 316 international dismissals as keeper.
He still boasts the record for the highest score by a Test wicketkeeper, making an unbeaten 232 against India when he was at the height of his powers in late 2000. That came in a golden 12 months in which Flower also posted scores of 142 and 199* in a Test against South Africa. His 341 runs that match are the most in a Test by a keeper – a statistic he owns the top three spots for.
After his playing days, he went onto be a hugely successful coach for England, winning home and away Ashes campaigns as well as the T20 World Cup in 2010.
