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 and Grant Flower set the record for the highest 2nd wicket partnership for Zimbabwe in ODI cricket(150)

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.[1]
