Zimbabwe Cricket Players
Grant FlowerGrant William Flower (born December 20, 1970 in Salisbury - now Harare) is a Zimbabwean cricketer. He is rated among the best Zimbabwean cricket players in history for his handy legspin, fine batting skills, and brilliant fielding. "Flower Power", the combination of Grant and his brother Andy Flower, was the mainstay of Zimbabwean batting for a decade. He has taken more ODI wickets than any other Zimbabwean bowler except Heath Streak. His ODI statistics are better than his Test statistics.
A fitness fanatic who spends hours in the gym, he currently plays for Essex as a Kolpak player. There was some grumbling amongst Essex supporters at his signing, but this appears to have died down after his first season, when he topped the Essex 2005 List-A batting averages and was third in the number of wickets taken.
