Cremer puts hold on cricket career temporarily
Zimbabwe leg spinner Graeme Cremer, temporarily took a break from cricket career.
Siting family reasons, the 32 year old leggie told reporters on Friday that he will fly to Dubai to join with his wife and kids. Cremer’s wife is working as a pilot and for setting up to a new environment, the children need their father to be around.
“With my wife always away flying, I now have a full-time job looking after the kids and settling them into this new environment,” he said.
“I am hoping this may only be temporary, so I may be able to commute back and forth to Zimbabwe, but who knows what the future holds… that’s all I can say at this stage.
“But while I am away I wish Zimbabwe Cricket all the very best in what’s to come, and I hope to join the boys again in the future,” Cremer said.
Cremer represented Zimbabwe in 19 Tests, 96 one-day internationals and 29 Twenty20 internationals.
Givemore Makoni, Zimbabwe Cricket’s acting managing director wishing him to see in the team back soon, said, “Your wickets, numbers and everything you have contributed to our game speak for themselves and we as ZC are proud of you,”
Makoni also said, “Your services will be greatly missed but we hope to have you in our national colors again soon. In the meantime, we send our best wishes to you and your family.”
