At the 2003 Cricket World Cup, Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga hit the world headlines. During the match with Namibia he and captain Andy Flower wore black armbands to protest as what they saw as "the death of democracy" in Zimababwe, then under the rule of Robert Mugabe. Olonga received threats to his life and was unable to return to Zimbabwe. In the first of our two part interview, Olonga reflects on his introduction to Test cricket and his actions at the 2003 World Cup which were motivated by his faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
