Maybe the longest stretch of ODI matches between a ball bowled in ODIs, that's something like 71 matches between January 2005 and March 2010?
Nope. Another clue: it was a bowling record in T20I.

Re: Preferred Zimbabwe Cricket - Horrendous Zimbabwe

Welcome back hhm. What you've said is true; the honest truth is that the playing group now is so poor that it doesn't matter who you pick, who the coach is or even who the admin is. Besides a small handful of credentialed players the quality is just not there any more. The Rinke/Matsikenyeri/Nkala t...

Future tour rumours

Does anyone "in the know", know what the potential tours lined up for the next year or so are beyond the upcoming SL series?

(The rate we're going it'll probably be a tour of Burkina Faso, with a few of our mercenaries opting out of it for the Libyan Premier League)

Re: Zimbabwe ODI squad for Scotland, Netherlands and SL

I think Malcolm Waller is a must down the order with his ability to hit out without needing to get his eye in. Don't think ZIM have other power hitters that are as reliable when it comes to finding boundaries in the death. I think Moor has more value trying to be a proper batsman than MW does. Nath...

Re: Zimbabwean participation in the Afghan league

I can't believe any international cricketer would go to Afghanistan.
Why not have a few warm-up matches in Mosul while they're at it?

I'll give a clue. The record was correct as of 16/20/2012 - I'm not saying it happened on that date ...
Judging by the date the record must have existed in a parallel universe :D
That's 16/02/2012 - my mistake.

Another hint to get the ball rolling again - it was a world record in bowling.

Re: [Match Thread] ODD - Rhinos v Tuskers & Mountaineers v Eagles

I see, a day later, that cricinfo still have Sean Ervine down as having played for Tuskers yesterday, it will be interesting to see how long his List A record has him down as playing in England and Zimbabwe at the same time Cricinfo are a bunch of useless. I'm pretty sure they've still credited a m...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

New Zealand Series in 2011 B. Taylor made scores of 128*; 107* and 75. His 310 runs is also a record number of runs in a three-match ODI series. That is a record he set, but not the unusual one I'm thinking of. I'll give a clue. The record was correct as of 16/20/2012 - I'm not saying it happened o...
