Description

The Good Murungu? is the story of Alan Butcher coaching Zimbabwe - the most dysfunctional of cricket's Test-playing nations. From the point he applied for the job and taking in three years with the team, this is the fascinating story of a coach trying to build a team while coming to terms with the unique culture and bureaucracy of Mugabe's Zimbabwe.
