Commentary
  • Right then. Zimbabwe take the series 2-1 and that is all we have from this game. It has been a pleasure to bring this series to you. There is plenty of cricketing action this month with the Indian T20 League getting underway. Make sure you join us for that! Take care and goodbye!
  • Scotland did not get early wickets. Alasdair Evans took 1 and Michael Leask took 2 in the middle overs to make sure that Zimbabwe were under pressure after a good start. They were in control of the game but the 17th over, in which Alasdair Evans went for 25 runs took the game away from them. They could never recover from that.
  • Zimbabwe had a good start with Regis Chakabva and Craig Ervine leading the way at the top. But both of them fell after getting a start. Sean Williams too fell early and Milton Shumba joined Wesley Madhevere in the middle. They took it slow at the start and the required rate was climbing up. Towards the end though, Milton Shumba teed off and sent the ball sailing all over the park to get his team over the line.
  • TAKE A BOW, MILTON SHUMBA! TAKE A BOW, ZIMBABWE! They were in a tough spot at one stage but Milton Shumba batted brilliantly to take them home. A brilliant knock by him and Zimbabwe have taken the series 2-1.
