--> GA Hick reached 200 wickets in first-class matches when he dismissed G Peck, his 3rd wicket in the Matabeleland Invitation XI second innings

This match was originally schedule for the 29-31 March 1997 but was rescheduled to enable those Matabeleland players going to Sharjah to catch their plane.
In the second innings, Streak went off after bowling one ball of his 14th over, which was completed by Rennie.
In the Worcestershire second innings, Abrams kept wicket (taking two catches) in place of Campbell, who was injured; Campbell resumed on the third morning. Thanks John Ward
