• Cremer announces break from international cricket

    Zimbabwe will be without former captain Graeme Cremer for the foreseeable future.

    Cremer has announced a temporary break from international cricket due to family commitments.

    He recently relocated from Harare to Dubai, where his wife works as a pilot.

    With my wife always away flying, I now have a full-time job looking after the kids and settling them into this new environment,’ said Cremer.

    ‘I am hoping this may only be temporary, so I may be able to commute back and forth to Zimbabwe, but who knows what the future holds. That’s all I can say at this stage.

    ‘But while I am away I wish Zimbabwe Cricket all the very best in what’s to come, and I hope to join the boys again in the future.’

    The 32-year-old has played 19 Tests, 96 ODIs and 29 T20Is since January 2005’s debut.

    ‘Your wickets, numbers and everything you have contributed to our game speak for themselves, and we as ZC are proud of you’ added¬†ZC acting managing director Givemore Makoni.

    ‘Your services will be greatly missed, but we hope to have you in our national colours again soon. In the meantime, we send our best wishes to you and your family.’
