What is the worst wicket taken by a Zimbabwean bowler since 2010?

Post by brmtaylor.com admin »

Who can think of a good one (or maybe it's a bad one)?
A Malcolm Waller long hop or a Hamilton Masakdza dibbly dobbler?

Mavuta's first test wicket was a short long hop.

Yeah, that came to my mind too.

Waller bowled so little and wasn't very lucky that way, and Hamilton's wickets would all be well set up with tight line and length.

In fact, if you list the worst wicket conceded by Zimbos since 2010, Waller might feature 7 times in the top 10 :D

Brendan Taylor got a wicket in 2010 with his rank off spin against South Africa

Not the answer youre looking for, but when that Afghan randomly hit the wicket a few years ago and got out, that would win as it required no effort or pressure from zimbabwes bowlers at all.

Also Taibu had a few lucky ones where he randomly premediated a stumping attempt and got a couple from a nosehair, and his guesses/random attempts made him look sensational.

Elton Chigumbura getting Faf Du Plessis caught down the leg side in the 2015 WC, definitely going for a leg side before Faf decided to gift Elton a wicket

I know it's not since 2010, but couldn't help myself. Number 5 on this list...
