Johannesburg: Zimbabwe captain Heath Streak insisted on Sunday he will not follow Andy Flower and Henry Olonga into retirement and that he would battle on at the head of his shell-shocked team."I will keep going as long as my body allows. I love my country, I love my job, I'll keep going," said Streak a day after teammates Flower and Olonga slipped into international retirement and exile, both fearing for their safety if they returned home.

The Zimbabwe skipper said he was sad about the retirement of the two men who had won wide international praise for their black armband protest against the regime of President Robert Mugabe."They're both quality players and it will be difficult to replace players of such calibre," said Streak.Copyright AFP 2001
