Yup. 2668 career international runs without a sixer hit for Ebrahim. Obviously, I followed up on the recent Cricinfo article so it was probably a little predictable :)

If we get Mawoyo and Burl represent Zim again in future, I would be more than happy for Mawoyo to remain in this list and continue to pile on the runs, but would definitely need Burl to get out of this list quickly :)

Our current coach, Lalchand Rajput is one of the very few players to have more than 100 international runs with no hits to the boundary - neither 4s, nor 6s.

Indeed. Here's one more from the top of my mind:

Q37. Only 43 cricketers have so far achieved this unique feat in all of test cricket's history. Paul Strang is the only Zimbo in this illustrious list. What is the feat and which country has most people in this list? Half a point for each correct answer.

A century and five wickets in an innings in the same match?

I'll say Strang is one of 43 cricketers who have taken 8 wickets in an innings only once in their career & never achieved 9 or 10 wickets. But the single 8 wicket haul is their test innings best.
So, in the test best bowling in an innings, we discount 10 fers, 9 fers & those taking 8 wickets in an innings more than once.

England has most instances with 14. Australia next with 13.

I missed the moment but 50 career centuries for Taylor with his second innings knock.

A major milestone achieved by only 3 other Zimbabweans.

Strang is indeed there in this list as the sole Zimbabwean, but this list is even more special and there are only 23 of them and not 43. Not exactly what I was looking for but on these lines...

This is quite a complicated filtering criteria you have come up with :). I wasn't looking for this, but if this is indeed the case and if there are exactly 43 of them too of this kind, I'll have to give you points for unearthing something like this.

But what I'm looking for is much simpler than this.
