Zimbabwe Cricket Players
Alistair CampbellAlistair Douglas Ross Campbell (born on 23 September 1972 in Salisbury, now Harare) is a former Zimbabwean Test cricketer. In total he played 60 matches in his Test career, captaining Zimbabwe on 21 occasions. He also played 188 one-day internationals, being captain in 86 of them. He retired from cricket in 2003.
An elegant left-hander, Alistair Campbell showed great early promise, being selected for the national side while still at school, and becoming the youngest Zimbabwean to make a first-class century. Selected for the 1992 World Cup at only 19, he struggled against world-class bowling, but the experience was invaluable. He soon became a fixture in the national side, and greatly impressed on the 1993-94 Pakistan tour, playing some excellent innings against one of the strongest bowling attacks in the world. His aggressive style has proved effective in one-day internationals, but his wish to dominate the bowling has led to difficulties in building big innings in Test matches. After being stuck on a Test-best of 99 for five years, he finally scored his first century, against India at Nagpur in 2000-01, and followed that up with 103 the following summer against West Indies. Campbell plays a wide range of shots, generating power without apparent effort. He occasionally bowls right-arm offspin, and is a magnificent fielder in any position. On taking over the captaincy in 1996, he led Zimbabwe to some notable successes including their remarkable series victory in Pakistan in 1998-99, and their qualification to the Super Sixes in the 1999 World Cup.
