:lol: I had forgot about this! What an innings! The definition of a hit-and-hoper, but when it occasionally worked he was unbelievable on his day.

Zhuwao was in the same ilk as Piet Rinke. Completely out of their depth against quality bowling, but on a good day they could hit it further than anyone.
Neil Johnson, Alistair Campbell, Murray Goodwin, Andy Flower (w), Grant Flower, Dave Houghton, Guy Whittall, Heath Streak (c), Andy Blignaut, Ray Price, Eddo Brandes

Rinke could absolutely obliterate a club bowling attack, and a decent one at that. He had more talent than people gave him credit for.
That 2006 era was truly a dark period for Zimbabwean Cricket though.
