Gavin James Rennie (born 12 January 1976 in Fort Victoria - now Masvingo) is a former Zimbabwean cricketer who played in 23 Tests and 40 ODIs from 1996 to 2003. He was a left-hand top order batsman and slow left-arm orthodox bowler although his bowling was mainly restricted to first class cricket.
His older brother John also played for Zimbabwe and in 1996-97 against Pakistan, history was made when the two played together along with the Strang and Flower brothers. It was the first time that 3 sets of brothers had played together in a game.
Rennie had a good start to his Test career, scoring half centuries in each of his first four Tests during 1997-98. He never scored a Test hundred and instead had to settle with a highest score of 93, made against New Zealand in 2000. Rennie holds the record for the most Test matches in a complete career (23) where a batsman batted twice in every match.
He was part of the Zimbabwean squad which won their first ever Test series away from home, against Pakistan in 1998-99.
Aged just 27, Rennie chose not to renew his contract in 2003 and instead chose to go into business, as a transport broker. Today, he is the co-owner of a safari camp in Zimbabwe.
