TATENDA Taibu is one of those cricketers who fans from around the world fondly remember as one of the last flag-bearers of Zimbabwe’s golden age in cricket. Despite his retirement at a tender age of 29, he made a name in world cricket with his achievements during some of the most troubled times in Zimbabwean cricket, marred by socio-political chaos. The 37-year-old now leads a peaceful life in Liverpool, England, with his family, after having left Zimbabwe in 2005 following death threats and an attempted kidnapping of his wife. The pocket-sized powerhouse finished his career as Zimbabwe’s fourth-highest run-scorer in ODIs, and with the second most dismissals as a wicketkeeper, only behind Andy Flower.

He became the youngest Test captain in world cricket when he was appointed to lead Zimbabwe at the age of 20 years 358 days in 2004. Rashid Khan recently toppled that record in 2019 by a margin of eight days when he became the captain of Afghanistan. Taibu made his international debut at the age of 18, and soon after becoming the first black man to lead Zimbabwe, ran into a never-ending battle with the cricket board and Zimbabwe’s political masters. Within a year of becoming the captain, he decided to quit and go on a self-imposed exile from international cricket amidst threats to his family. He left Zimbabwe to seek refuge in Bangladesh, Namibia and South Africa before settling in England.
