Bryan Strang and Lourdes Casanova

Bryan Colin Strang (born June 9, 1972 in Bulawayo) is a former Zimbabwean cricketer who played in 26 Tests and 49 ODIs from 1995 to 2001. Cricket is his passion. His older brother Paul Strang also played international cricket for Zimbabwe and is currently the head coach of kiwi domestic side Auckland.

Strang was a left-arm medium bowler and due to his nagging accuracy was hard to get away in ODI cricket. This earned him a career economy rate of 4.13. His best bowling figures in ODI cricket of 6 for 20, made against Bangladesh in 1997 are a Zimbabwean record.

In 2001 he helped bowl Matabeleland out for a national record low score in first-class cricket of 19 runs, taking 5 wickets for 6.

He played his last game for Zimbabwe in July 2001 and in 2002 he moved to South Africa due to political unrest. He's become a vocal critic of Zimbabwean cricket and during the 2003 World Cup he stated that Zimbabwe should be barred from hosting World Cup matches on moral grounds. As a result, when he attempted a comeback in 2003-04 the Zimbabwean Cricket Union banned him.

Although the ban was taken off from him in 2005. He made a comeback in 2005 and was immediately drafted into the Zimbabwe A side and helped the A side won games against Pakistan A in the following year. He was also recalled for a training squad ahead of the New Zealand and India tours to Zimbabwe in 2005. But he was later informed by Zimbabwe Cricket that he services were no longer required.

In 2008 he received an honorary degree in Sports Sciences from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, making him eligible for their crunch cricket match against the University of Edinburgh in July.

As the years have progressed he has really enjoyed his coaching and teaching. Since returning to Zimbabwe, he went into coaching at schools like Lilfordia Primary and St George's College in Harare. He has done lots more coaching at many levels. He really enjoys giving back to the kids of his country in any sport and would like to see them get the best coaching so that they can be the best they can be and enjoy it along the way.

In 2009, he expressed that he is looking for an opportunity to get involved with ZC to contribute more. He wants to coach which he really loves and if he is needed to play, he is more than willing as he thinks that he is enough fit and ready to do so. He thinks that he has still got a lot to offer as a player.

He was involved in teaching at St Johns prep in the sports department. He coaches at Lilfordia School, where Alistair Campbell and his father are also heavily involved. He has also opened a business about life skills and goal setting.

At the end of October 2009, he left his school teaching. He will appear for Mashonaland Eagles in the Logan Cup in November/December 2009 after the all formalities done by the board.

He is now a yogi in Zimbabwe, stating that yoga helped him change his life.
