The second one-dayer at the Harare Sports Club went right down to the final ball as Shaylin Pillay hit a boundary with two needed to seal a one-wicket win.
Zimbabwe U-19 did a splendid job to make the hosts huff and puff, and by the final over, the game could have gone either way. Keaton Jennings was impressive yet again for the visitors with a half-century, but the rest of the batsmen didn’t look as assured in the chase of 224.
Zimbabwe got off to a good start after losing the toss, with the openers Brian Chari and Kevin Hook adding 78. The hosts were going along well at 130 for 1 in the 29th over, but a slew of wickets saw them lose four for 19 runs.
It was Chari’s dismissal for 62, off a run-out, which sparked the collapse. Zimbabwe were let down by four run outs in total, and as a result couldn’t string together any big partnerships despite the solid start provided by the top order. Riayaad Henry, the right-arm seamer, took 4 for 39. —Cricinfo
