Birthday special: This Zimbabwe player was the youngest captain!

138


Today is the birthday of former Zimbabwe captain Tatenda Taibu. He was born on this day i.e. 14 May 1983 in Harare. Today we are going to give you information about Zimbabwean wicketkeeper-batsman Tatenda Taibu, about which you are hardly aware.



Tatenda Taibu got an opportunity to play in the national team when he studied in school. He was selected to the Zimbabwe team when he studied at Churchill Boys' High School. During this time he made his debut against the West Indies.

The special thing is that Tatenda Taibu played under-19 World Cup and first-class cricket only after playing in international cricket. However, due to the volatile situation in the country and political interference in cricket, the cricketing career of Taibu could not be prolonged.

He broke the record of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi of India by captaining Zimbabwe at the age of only 20 years and 358 days. However, this record of Taibu was later broken by Rashid Khan of Afghanistan.
