At the turn of the century one of the most formidable cricket teams in the world was from Zimbabwe. The team regularly punched above its weight. Then political turmoil and retirements brought the team low. So low, in fact, that Zimbabwe stopped playing Test cricket. Finally, after years of prowling around the fringes of top-class international cricket, Zimbabwe has played its first Test match in nearly six years. They took on Bangladesh (an admittedly weak side) and won. Unfortunately, the troubles facing the country of Zimbabwe show no sign of going away. On the same day as victory was won on the cricket field, investigators discovered a torture camp used by security forces in the country.
