How on earth can they miss Murray Goodwin, and more importantly, GUY WHITTALL?

I thought you guys would be interested to know about my attempts to find footage of Zimbabwe's first ever test. After contacting both David Coltart and Dave Houghton I have ascertained that the test was never filmed so no such footage exists. Amazing to think that such a country's first ever test was not filmed in any capacity.

The 1992 equivalent of ZBC wouldn't have sent down a reporter to film a bit for the nightly news?

Seems hard to believe that no footage whatsoever ever existed, but if it did, no one has it now.

Not sure if anyone had found his before ?

The dramatic finish to the famous 'We murdered em' test match

The Zimbabwe tactics to save the match were extreme but the English had no complaints

Will we ever see England play another Test in Bulawayo?

The game v Australia when Carlisle & Grant Flower put on that massive partnership and then Marrillier almost stole it.

You must remember this game was from early 2001, no one played those types of shots then.
