The New Zealand public voted against a flag change, but that news seemingly hasn't made its way to Zimbabwe.

A graphic during the first cricket test between the Black Caps and Zimbabwe has depicted New Zealand as flying the Kyle Lockwood flag - the black and blue flag which was the runner-up in the flag referendum earlier this year.

Made by Zimbabwean television producers and broadcast on SKY, the graphic was aired at the start of the test, and was spotted by several people who shared it on social media.

The Black Caps dominated the first day of the test, rolling Zimbabwe for 164 and reaching 32-0 in response.

The second day's play starts at 7.30pm, with live updates on nzherald.co.nz.
