# Zimbabwean Jackie du Preez who played for South Africa passes away at 77.

Former Zimbabwean cricketer Jackie du Preez passed away on Thursday in Harare due to a long-standing heart condition, International Cricket Council (ICC) said.


The leg-spinner played for South Africa in Zimbabwe's pre-independence days. He played two Tests for South Africa in 1967.

Du Preez didn't represent South Africa thereafter but enjoyed a long and successful first-class career. He picked up 296 wickets in 120 first-class matches.

He also enjoyed enough success with the bat so as to be labelled an all-rounder, scoring 4,063 runs in first-class cricket at an average of 23.76, including one century and 19 fifties.

He later spent a period as a member of Zimbabwe Cricket's selection panel.
