This was one of the most horrible news about a cricketer. Former Zimbabwean all-rounder Guy Whittall spent whole night in a room where an eight-foot-long and 330-pound crocodile was resting under the bed.

According to British newspaper Daily Mail, the crocodile somehow managed to sneak into the Humani Lodge rest house for tourists, and stayed in hiding for eight hours in the room where Whittall was staying. Surprisingly, he had no idea about what was under his bed. In fact, he only realised it next morning when he heard one chambermaid screaming. The hotel staff later found the beast under Whittall's bed.

The cricketer played 46 Tests and 147 ODIs for Zimbabwe. He says, “Now when I think about it I am completely terrified. Before going for breakfast this morning I sat on the bed with my feet resting on floor, that is few inches away from such a huge crocodile.” Whittall, 41, is presently the director of Humani Lodge.

It was reported that the crocodile came to the hotel from River Turgwe that flows nearby. Later, the crocodile was set free back in the river.

Zimbabwe has a key position in Africa due to its wild life. The safari here is a major attraction for the tourists looking for natural landscape and animals.
