10 February, Zimbabwe v Namibia, Harare
Riann Walters (Namibia)
Taking advantage of the first 15 over bowling restrictions and chasing a formidable 341 to win, Riann cleverly steered the first ball from Heath Streak straight into the gloves of wicket keeper Tatenda 'Tibbly' Taibu to register the tournaments first golden duck.
DD rating - 6 lilypads
Breadcrumb moment - Andy Flower and Henry Olonga (Zimbabwe)
Both players, wearing black armbands during the whole of the World Cup, have issued a joint statement that they were making a 'silent protest, mourning the death of democracy in Zimbabwe'. As the statement continues, let's hope that your actions .... "may help to restore sanity and dignity to our Nation"
Puts the whole World Cup into perspective, really.
Breadcrumb moment - Andries Johannes (Jan-Berrie) Burger (Namibia)
The beefy Burger, his team in a pickle, deciding that the bowling of the Zimbabwean side is to his taste, grills Streak (surely a typo - should be Steak, really) and Olonga with relish. Unfortunately, with a few notable exceptions (15 from one Heath Streak over) it doesn't last long. He'll be panned for the hoik to midwicket which led to his dismissal.
