New Zealand won by 90 runs
3 February 2012 (50-over match)

Mills to Matsikenyeri, OUT, for the second time today a wicket falls in the opening over of the innings, this angled in to leg and he tried to whip it away but it moved away a touch and struck him on middle and leg, given out, thinks of a review but is told to forget it

S Matsikenyeri lbw b Mills 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Zimbabwe 3/1   H Masakadza 2* (4b)   KD Mills 1-0-3-1

Bracewell to Chakabva, OUT

H Masakadza run out 7 (20m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

Zimbabwe 10/2   RW Chakabva 2* (10b)   DAJ Bracewell 2.2-1-2-0

Mills to Chakabva, OUT, Napier's ghosts loom portentiously over this match as Zimbabwe lose their third wicket inside the opening 10 overs, good length on off, moves away a touch, healthy edge provides some slip catching practice

RW Chakabva c Nicol b Mills 2 (23m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Zimbabwe 15/3   BRM Taylor 4* (4b 1x4)   KD Mills 3.1-1-8-2

Ellis to Taibu, OUT, Taibu perishes looking to up the tempo, gave himself some room and tried to smash it over the covers, the length wasn't quite full enough and he skied it to the edge of the circle, where Kane takes a comfortable catch

T Taibu c Williamson b Ellis 20 (59m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.28

Zimbabwe 67/4   BRM Taylor 35* (47b 6x4)   AM Ellis 3.5-0-14-1

Nicol to Taylor, OUT, Nicol has the last laugh though! Bishen Bedi used to clap whenever batsmen hit him for a boundary, knowing that he would get them when they tried to do it again. Here he skies this to long-off, where Ellis tumbles but takes it cleanly

BRM Taylor c Ellis b Nicol 58 (87m 68b 8x4 1x6) SR: 85.29

Zimbabwe 97/5   MN Waller 7* (13b)   RJ Nicol 1.3-0-9-1

Nicol to Waller, OUT, Zimbabwe slide further, this one was turning in from off to middle, hit on the pad, initially not given but New Zealand use a review and it is shown to be hitting the top of middle

MN Waller lbw b Nicol 12 (34m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Zimbabwe 110/6   E Chigumbura 7* (8b)   RJ Nicol 3-0-17-2

Bracewell to Chigumbura, OUT, again times the drive well but this time he has hit it straight back to Bracewell, who holds it nicely

E Chigumbura c & b Bracewell 15 (18m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 93.75

Zimbabwe 119/7   KO Meth 1* (2b)   DAJ Bracewell 6.4-1-28-1

Mills to SW Masakadza, OUT, outside off on a good length, bit of bounce and away movement, Shinig tries to defend but gets a thick edge to provide Nicol with another easy catch

SW Masakadza c Nicol b Mills 2 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Zimbabwe 122/8   KO Meth 2* (4b)   KD Mills 6.5-2-17-3

Nicol to Meth, OUT, three wickets for Nicol, Meth went down on bent knee for the sweep on middle and off, missed and was struck dead in front, going on to hit middle and leg halfway up

KO Meth lbw b Nicol 10 (47m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Zimbabwe 156/9   RW Price 26* (29b 5x4)   RJ Nicol 3.2-0-18-3

Nicol to Jarvis, OUT, Jarvis comes down and has a massive heave-ho at Nicol, gets nowhere near it and tries to slide the foot back over the line but Baz is quick as a flash to knock the bails off, New Zealand wrap up a comprehensive 90-run win

KM Jarvis st †BB McCullum b Nicol 2 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Zimbabwe 158/10   RW Price 26* (35b 5x4)   RJ Nicol 4.1-0-19-4
