Andy Flower Becomes First Zimbabwean to be Inducted into International Cricketers Hall of Fame

Former Zimbabwean Cricketer, Andy Flower has been inducted into the ICC hall of fame.

Ahead of the first ever World Test Championship final, the ICC has inducted a specialist of 10 players into its hall of fame.

The inductees have been classified into five broad eras: Noble and Aubret Faulkner from the pre-world war 1 period (early era), Learie Constantine and Stan McCabe from the period between the two world wars (inter-war-era).

However, Andy Flower was included in the morden era (1996 to 2015).

Flower remains arguably the greatest player in Zimbabwe’s history, scoring 4794 Test runs at 51.54 including some of the grittiest Knicks ever played in the morden era, including a match-saving unbeaten 232 against India in 2000.

His career came to an end during the 2003 World Cup, when he and fast bowler Henry Olonga were black armbands during all of Zimbabwe’s games to protest what they termed “death of democracy” in Zimbabwe.
