The other notable event in the Zimbabwe innings was the arrival of Andy Flower, wearing a black arm-band as a mark of protest against the dictatorial regime of Robert Mugabe. He and team-mate Henry Olonga, who joined in the protest, described their decision as "a silent plea to those responsible to stop the abuse of human rights in Zimbabwe". Another significant gesture came when Andy left the field after making a rapid-fire 39; the elder Flower lofted his bat and acknowledged the crowd as if to say good-bye.
