Reference Number: DX-101-123

A caricature of Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe. The president is wearing a huge pair of sunglasses, in one lens of which is reflected a view of a cricket match and in the other a ruined shantytown. He is pointing at the cricket with his right hand and giving the fingers in a rude gesture at the shantytown with his left. Below the caricature is a label saying 'Match referee' and above it is the title 'Just not cricket'. Refers to the mounting pressure on the New Zealand Cricket team not to tour Zimbabwe in August because of the human rights abuses of the Robert Mugabe regime.
