Such terrible news.

What is striking is the number of tributes being posted from around the world including by so many very high profile current and former cricketers. Very few Zimbabwean cricketers have ever had such reach and legacy.

At the time of writing, absolutely nothing from ZC. Presumably they are still nursing their hangovers after their big piss-up in Bulawayo following the board 'elections' yesterday evening.

From BBC Sport:
In a statement, Zimbabwe Cricket said: "Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family, friends, and fans of former captain Heath Streak. His contributions to cricket will always be remembered, and he will be dearly missed. Rest in peace."

An umpire who officiated Streak's ODI debut, Piloo Reporter, has also died on the same day.

Thats hypocrisy at its finest.

Anyone know why Blessing cut short his T20, citing personal reasons?

A nice tribute from the South African commentary team. Pommie had it right and said it well

ZC with a nice statement. Thankfully they managed to avoid mentioning you know what.

Yeah, what a strange co-incidence.
