Everyone at Warwickshire is saddened to hear the news that former Club Captain Heath Streak has died at the age of 49.

Streak, the former Zimbabwe captain and talented all-rounder, had advanced colon and liver cancer and had been receiving specialist treatment. He is survived by his wife, Nadine, and four children.

“In the early hours of this morning, Sunday the 3rd of September 2023, the greatest love of my life and the father of my beautiful children, was carried to be with the Angels from his home where he wished to spend his last days surrounded by his family and closest loved ones,” Nadine wrote on social media.

Streak joined the Bears in 2004 and was made Captain in 2006. Capped the previous year, Streak spent two years leading out Warwickshire before winding down his career in the Indian Cricket League. 

As a Bear, Streak made 109 appearances across all formats, scoring 1,820 runs and taking 188 wickets

Following his playing career, Streak found opportunities as a bowling coach around the world, as well as founding his own academy, the Heath Streak Academy, in Bulawayo in 2014.

Our thoughts are with Heath’s family and friends at this time.
