NEW DELHI: Former Zimbabwe star cricketer Heath Streak passed away in the early hours of September 3. This time, the confirmation of his passing came directly from his family members.
After his demise, Heath Streak’s wife, Nadine, took to social media to write a heartfelt message in memory of her husband.
“In the early hours of this morning, Sunday, September 3rd, 2023, the greatest love of my life and the father of my beautiful children, was carried to be with the angels from his home, where he wished to spend his last days surrounded by his family and closest loved ones. He was covered in love and peace and did not walk off the park alone. Our souls are joined for eternity, Streaky. Till I hold you again,” Nadine Streak wrote on Facebook.

Former Zimbabwean fast bowler Henry Olonga also took to X (formerly called as Twitter) and wrote: “RIP. Streaky”.

Streak played 65 Tests and 189 ODIs for his country between 1993 and 2005 and claimed more than 450 international wickets.
Streak, who was the first Zimbabwean bowler to take 100 wickets in ODIs, was known for his impressive all-round skills as a fast-medium bowler and a competent lower-order batsman.
He was also the first cricketer from his country to reach 100 wickets in both Test and ODI formats.
After retiring as a player, Streak took up coaching and was involved with various teams and franchises. He worked as a bowling coach for Bangladesh’s national cricket team and later took up the role of head coach for the team.
However, his coaching career took an unfortunate turn when he was banned from all cricket-related activities for eight years in 2021 by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for his involvement in corrupt practices.
