Cricket has witnessed several legends and world-class players make it large. While representing your country is itself an achievement, several players make their country proud on the field. It takes talent and hard work to excel on the biggest stage.

Various cricketing nations have been lucky to witness not one but several world-class players play for their respective teams. However, this has often resulted in one individual getting overshadowed. There are several instances where a cricketer doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves.

Cricket has witnessed several such underrated players who have played international cricket. Every team has at least one underappreciated cricketer in their history. Today we shall be taking a look at-

10) Zimbabwe- Heath Streak

Heath Streak is unarguably one of the greatest bowlers to have played for Zimbabwe. It is really sad that he was never appreciated as much as he deserved to be. The former Zimbabwean pacer was an absolute legend, to say the least.

Despite not playing as many matches as he should, owing to Zimbabwe’s position on the cricket map, he still made an impact whenever given a chance. He has picked as many as 450 international wickets in 255 games. This includes 8 fifers as well.

It was safe to say that he carried a rather fragile bowling unit all by himself. One must remember that he wasn’t a mug with the bat either. The former Zimbabwe captain and bowling coach has also scored 24 fifties and a hundred.
