<p>However, Streak’s daughter denied the allegations, stating that his father is still alive, and Olonga also clarified and apologized.</p>
<p>Streak, 49, has voiced his dissatisfaction with the situation and urged people to exercise caution before “spreading such rumors.”</p>
<p>“Before spreading such rumors, people need to use a little more caution. Streak was reported by Sportstar as stating, “I am well now and recuperating from cancer.</p>
<p>Streak has stage 4 colon and liver cancer, but he claims he is improving.</p>
<p>“I am at home, but clearly the therapy is still putting some burden on me. I’m OK otherwise, however. I learn all of a sudden that my death is being discussed because someone posted about it on social media. But not everything in it was true. I’m getting better and feeling much better,” he remarked.</p>
<p>Streak, who played in 189 ODIs and 65 Test matches for Zimbabwe, is recognized as one of the game’s best players.</p>
<p>With 216 victims, he holds the record for most wickets in Test cricket and is the first Zimbabwean to have 100 in the format.</p>
<p>The most of any player from his nation in ODIs, he got 239 wickets.</p>
<p>Streak scored 1989 runs in Tests and 2943 runs in ODIs with the bat. Over the course of his career in Zimbabwe, he hit one century and 24 half-centuries.</p>
<p>After retiring, Streak experimented in coaching and worked with the Gujarat Lions, Kolkata Knight Riders, Zimbabwe, and Bangladesh. He was given an eight-year suspension from all forms of cricket in 2021 after being found guilty of violating the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.</p>
<p>Streak pleaded guilty to five counts but said he had never engaged in match rigging.</p>
