Graeme Cremer, Zimbabwe legspinner, has temporarily put his cricket career on hold due to family commitments. The former national skipper recently relocated from Harare to join his wife, who works as a pilot in Dubai.
“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.”
Givemore Makoni, Zimbabwe Cricket’s acting managing director, appreciated Cremer’s contribution and sent his wishes to see him back soon. “Your wickets, numbers and everything you have contributed to our game speak for themselves and we as ZC are proud of you,” Makoni said. “Your services will be greatly missed but we hope to have you in our national colours again soon. In the meantime, we send our best wishes to you and your family.”
The leggie has represented Zimbabwe in 19 Tests, 96 one-day internationals and 29 Twenty20 internationals.
