First time a black batsman made it past 50 for Zimbabwe?

Not what I'm looking for. To be honest, it's not your usual kind of "stat" which alerted me to this match ;)

Again, not what I'm looking for. It's not an individual stat, neither a real team stat either. Historical landmark might be a more appropriate term.

Was that the match where Marillier whipped out the scoop shot for the first time?

I remember watching this match and started liking Trevor Madondo. He played really well till he got out. Had some strike rotation issues to begin with, but for a youngster trying to find his feet, he was way better than many others who got into the team after him in years that followed.

This was also one of those rare matches where Murphy matched his hype. He was in control mostly and I remember him bowling very well.

Whittall was carrying an injury and could not bowl, and Marilliar was still primarily a batsman at the time, which explains that horrid over by Campbell :)

Coming back to the question itself. I remember the death over butchering by Agarkar which meant that he scored the fastest 50 by an Indian in ODIs (matched by Dravid later if I remember correctly - in 21 balls). Don't think that is the stat you are ;looking for.

Then did a bit of exploration and found out this:

This Rajkot ODI happens to be the last ODI in history to be played with red balls and white clothing!

Correct.

I wasn't aware of this until a couple of days ago when someone mentioned this in a live blog from one of the WC washouts.

Can someone explain to me why they played ODI cricket in whites with a red ball??

Seems odd considering ODI cricket started with coloured clothing & a white ball

Wsc started with coloured clothing but ODI cricket started with whites.
