So we see here that Mr Mukhulani, Mr Chingoka, Mr Bvute and Mr Ebrahim have a close association going back many years, it's just smoke and mirrors.

Gus Mackay must certainly be considered an alltime great.

Gus Mackay in the field. I don't know how he survived a couple of those.

He ran cricket out of his office with his secretary!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
ZC had 800 employees at one point. :lol: :lol: :lol:
And they responded to fans as well. I still have the email from Mr Ellman-Brown when I congratulated Zim on NZ series win in NZ courtesy Streak's heroics.

His average is way below his brother, but I'd include Grant Flower. He was a fine opening batsmen who took some shifting, but had a good array of shots as well. He was decent left armer, and a brilliant fielder.

For me he typified Zimbabwean cricket, and was the type of player that attracted me to them in the first place. There are plenty of others of course...
