Heath Streak is not dead: News about his Death is not Accurate

News about Heath Streak, the former captain of Zimbabwe’s cricket team, passing away is not accurate. Heath Streak is alive and well.

Streak was a well-known figure in Zimbabwean sports in the 1990s and early 2000s. However, his cricket career took a sudden downturn. He had an impressive track record, playing in 65 Test matches and 189 One Day Internationals (ODIs). In these matches, he managed to score 4,933 runs and take 455 wickets for his country. Streak’s accomplishments were quite remarkable on the global sports platform.

After he stopped playing in 2005, Streak moved into coaching positions. He shared his knowledge with different teams in local and worldwide cricket. He worked as a coach for Bangladesh, his own country Zimbabwe, and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Still, this remarkable career faced a troubling twist in 2021 when Streak, the former captain of Zimbabwe, admitted to five breaches of the ICC’s anti-corruption code. This admission led to an eight-year ban from the sport. One of the significant charges against him was his acceptance of a payment in bitcoins from an individual with corrupt intentions.

There are many accusations that involve various games from the years 2017 and 2018. These claims are about his time as a coach after he finished playing, when he was coaching for international cricket with Zimbabwe from 2016 to 2018.

He also took part in different T20 leagues like the IPL, the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), and the Afghanistan Premier League (APL).

Henry Olonga’s Message on Twitter

“Sad news coming through that Heath Streak has crossed to the other side. RIP @ZimCricketv legend. The greatest all rounder we produced. It was a pleasure playing with you. See you on the other side when my bowling spell comes to an end…”. This message was shared on Twitter by former Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga. However, the tweet has been removed now.

Henry Olonga was one of the first people to write about Heath Streak's death.

Olonga later made sure everyone knew that Streak was still alive. “I can confirm that rumours of the demise of Heath Streak have been greatly exaggerated. I just heard from him. The third umpire has called him back. He is very much alive folks.” Olonga posted on X (previously known as Twitter).
