The story so far...

Mike Atherton loses his middle stump to Matabeleland's Henry Olonga yesterday after making just four in the latest of his Zimbabwe batting disasters.

Against the President's XI he was caught off a leading edge at mid-off, second ball, for nought.

His footwork got him into trouble against Mashonaland, being twice caught behind when sparring outside off stump. His scores were two and seven.

In the one-day Sunday match against Matabeleland he chipped a catch to short square leg, but had hit five boundaries, scoring 28 in 29 balls.

Yesterday, the best ball of the day - an away swinger of near yorker length - ripped out his middle stump. He stayed 14 balls and played one scoring shot before his anguished walk back to the pavilion (below).
