Height score in oneday international ODI

Zimbabwe batsman break our expectations, old cricket legend Zimbabwe gives new star to inter national cricket world!.he is a middle order aggressive batsman, he played against India in 2005.

He's made 194, the 12-year record has been equalled. Saeed Anwar got the same score against India in Chennai during the Independence Cup in 1997. Coventry should have received more strike at the end, that couple by Utseya was not the right call. Coventry leads the players off the field, his team congratulates him with a guard of honour as he walks towards the pavilion. It is worth adding that Coventry gets to top the list of highest run-getter's in ODIs as he's remained unbeaten. Anwar was dismissed after making 194.

"It's a great feeling. I had a bit of luck early on, I suppose that's the way things go. It's staying a bit low, I'm sure we can defend it."

Coventry's short of words as he speaks, he can't contain his excitement.

Charles "Chappie" Coventry is an aggressive middle-order batsman who can open in one-day cricket and also keep wicket.

He was Zimbabwe's youngest first-class player at 15 years 303 days, for Matabeleland in 1998, although that was due to being in the right place when a selected player withdrew at the last minute.

Son of international umpire Charles Coventry, he learned his cricket at Whitestone School and Christian Brothers College in Bulawayo, and plays for Bulawayo Athletic Club.

He played for the national Under-19 team in the World Cup in 2002, when he was also a student at the CFX Academy.

He bats in glasses and most of his successes have been in one-day cricket; he has yet to learn to build major innings in first-class cricket.

He favours the lofted drive but as yet lacks the discipline required of a consistently successful batsman.

Despite this, he played two Tests against India in September 2005, after the withdrawal of most of Zimbabwe's top players, and did no worse than anybody else.

However, coach Kevin Curran reports that he was sent back from the West Indies tour for disciplinary reasons. He went to play club cricket in England and it remains to be seen whether he has a future in Zimbabwe cricket.
