Profile

A classical legspinner with a high action, Graeme Cremer has made a good fist of mastering a difficult art and still has his best years ahead of him. Like many of Zimbabwe's players he was thrown in at the deep end with a Test debut at the age of 18, when he did well under the circumstances. Most impressive was his ability to survive a hammering - a key attribute for any wrist spinner - as seen when he was pummeled by the South African batsmen, but stuck to his task and ended day one of the first Test with the extraordinary figures of 9-0-86-3, which included the wickets of Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers and Jacques Kallis. Zimbabwe's subsequent Test exile gave him time to develop his game, and he emerged an improved bowler in his next international series - against Kenya in 2009. Since then he has honed his one-day game and become an exciting presence in the Zimbabwe side. Knee surgery kept him out of the game for Zimbabwe's home Tests in 2011, but he returned in time to take on New Zealand in January 2012. Cremer also has good technique with the bat, which has seen him post a first-class score of 171 not out.
