London: Zimbabwe Cricket Union chairman Peter Chingoka has said that while Heath Streak can come back into the team, he will not be reinstated as the captain. Re-instating Streak as captain has been a key demand of the country's 15 rebel white players ever since the pace bowler sparked the present dispute by complaining about the composition of Zimbabwe's selection panel. In Streak's absence, 20-year-old wicket-keeper Tatenda Taibu became the first black cricketer and the youngest ever international captain when he led Zimbabwe during Tuesday's one-day international against Sri Lanka in Bulawayo.
