Prakash Govindasreenivasan looks back at the career of the man who joined hands with Andy Flower and bravely stood up to tyranny. He was only 17 when he made his debut for Matabeleland in the Logan Cup when he took five wickets against Mashonaland. He suffered an indifferent form in the following season. But to his surprise, he was called up to the national side for the series against Pakistan in Olonga, went back to the drawing board and worked hard on his action under the able guidance of Dennis Lillee. To iron out the flaws, he reworked his action entirely and came back as a rejuvenated cricketer. Olonga was probably the quickest bowlers to emerge from Zimbabwe but had the drawbacks of being a bit erratic with his appetite for bowling regular no-balls and wide deliveries. In his short career, Olonga found his toughest opponent outside the cricket field. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe began to infiltrate into the selection policies of the team. By season, Mugabe charted out a quota system for the selection of a minimum number of black players in the team.
Even as they pushed for a first ever Test win against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe’s cricketers did so knowing their salaries would be cut after the two-Test series. Zimbabwe had been defeated in the first Test by 10 wickets, though they fought well in the first half of the match. Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani said “it can’t be business as usual” given the financial crunch the team faced, and indicated that this was being done to ensure better long-term financial health.
It can’t be business as usual. But I will assume that everyone will accept it. We will rather make sacrifices today and survive tomorrow.
“However, we do not believe that the cancellation of one cricket match in Zimbabwe will make any difference to the leaders of that regime.

Prince Dube was the hero for the home side netting in each of the half while Taderera Wellington came from the bench to add the third. Hlompho Kalake scored a late consolation goal to give Lesotho hope going into the second leg match to be played in Maseru next month. Lesotho enjoyed a lot of ball possession in the offensive areas in the opening exchanges of the match, but struggled to find their way past Zimbabwe’s defence and test goalie Chinani Simbarashe. However, against the run of play, Zimbabwe broke the deadlock as Dube found himself unmarked in the box and headed in a cross from Phenias Bamusi to give the Warriors the lead in the 20th minute of the game.
Both teams struggled to create more goal scoring chances and the match headed to the half-time break still separated by the Dube opener. The lanky forward had a chance to double the lead early in the second half as his attempted lob went over the bar with Lesotho goalkeeper, Ntsane Lichaba already beaten.

Zimbabwe needed a miracle to even make a match of it and though their top order played a few adventurous strokes, the challenge was always.
The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. This article was published more than 10 years ago. Some information in it may no longer be current. England’s cricket team refused yesterday to play its coming World Cup match in Zimbabwe, dealing a blow to President Robert Mugabe’s government and a victory to the political opposition.
After much controversy and a failed last-minute court challenge, the English team backed out of tomorrow’s match against Zimbabwe, citing “security concerns. The decision, after equivocation from the English Cricket Board and the players, could cost the team vital points likely needed to reach the final rounds of the tournament. Malcolm Speed, chief executive of the International Cricket Council, announced that it had cancelled the match and would decide later on the ECB’s request to move it to another country.
World Cup director Ali Bacher said the game is being postponed in an attempt to find a compromise and avert an England boycott. Zimbabwe’s government did not immediately comment.

Ten years ago 15 white Zimbabwean cricketers went on strike. The game has not been the same since. A s the nets at the Harare Sports Club came into view and he gained his first glimpse of Zimbabwe’s cricket future, Tatenda Taibu paused to survey the scene. Freshly installed, at 20, as the youngest international captain in the history of the game, Taibu was arriving from a meeting to take part in Zimbabwe’s first practice session of a new era.
Two days earlier, on April 16, , 13 players had gone on strike after the cricket board refused to meet their demands. Many of them were senior, experienced cricketers; all of them were white. The man squad practising in the nets had been announced just hours after the strike was confirmed. The majority were young and untested at international level; only one was white.
Perhaps for the first time in 15 years, Bangladesh find themselves under pressure against Zimbabwe at home. During this period, Bangladesh have enjoyed, particularly at home, a heavy advantage in terms of spin-bowling, coupled with the opposition’s lack of experience. The loss in the Sylhet Test two years ago was treated as a blip for the home side, and a big occasion in Zimbabwe cricket.
But normal service resumed thereafter as Bangladesh bounced back to beat Zimbabwe by runs in the next Test. The current situation, however, presents a different context for the home side.
