Like many other cricketers, Craig too comes hails from a cricketing background. His father and grandfather represented in the domestic circuit of Zimbabwe. With plenty of ups and downs in his career path, Craig too had a tough time when he almost lost his right hand.
After playing in the domestic circuit like his father and grandfather, Craig first represented Zimbabwe in May 2010. Regarded by many as the future of Zimbabwe cricket, a young promising Craig had the potential to glitter in the colours of the national side.
Craig became the 24th player to earn a T20I cap for the Red Devils and would later go on to make his ODI debut in the same month. While his T20 Debut was against Sri Lanka, he made his ODI debut against India.
A year later Craig would go on to win his first Test cap and has since been an integral part of the national set-up. With more than 5000 international runs to his name, he by far considered as one of the successful cricketers from Zimbabwe.
In 2020 Craig was named the captain of the national team for the only Test match against Bangladesh. In his first innings as the captain of the side he would go on to score 107 and achieve a rare feat of scoring a Test hundred on captaincy debut.
