Zimbabwe in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v Zimbabwe

New Zealand won by 7 wickets (with 19 balls remaining)

1.4

Bates to Taylor, OUT, big wicket of Zimbabwe's best batsman, he shuffled across to work to leg and it clipped the leg bail, only the slip fielder seemed to be aware to the fact among the New Zealanders

BRM Taylor b Bates 3 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Zimbabwe 5/1   H Masakadza 2* (4b)   MD Bates 0.4-0-2-1

2.5

Mills to Mutizwa, OUT, soft way to end your first international appearance on the tour, Forster goes for nought as he just pops a gentle catch to cover coming forward without proper intent

F Mutizwa c Guptill b Mills 0 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 16/2   H Masakadza 13* (8b 1x4 1x6)   KD Mills 1.5-0-14-1

10.2

Williamson to H Masakadza, OUT, comes down the track and goes for his fourth six but can't clear the fielder on the midwicket boundary

H Masakadza c Franklin b Williamson 53 (40m 36b 3x4 3x6) SR: 147.22

Zimbabwe 78/3   T Taibu 21* (18b 2x4)   KS Williamson 0.2-0-2-1

12.2

NL McCullum to Taibu, OUT, Taibu gave himself some room and mistimes the hoy over cover down to long-off

T Taibu c Bracewell b NL McCullum 27 (35m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Zimbabwe 88/4   MN Waller 4* (6b)   NL McCullum 1.2-0-9-1

14.5

Mills to Waller, OUT, another slower ball wide of off, Waller waits and pulls but can't get any muscle behind it and Guptill runs in from long-on to take a neat, sliding catch

MN Waller c Guptill b Mills 11 (17m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Zimbabwe 106/5   E Chigumbura 11* (7b 1x6)   KD Mills 2.5-0-24-2

17.4

Hira to SW Masakadza, OUT, maiden international wicket for Hira as Shingi misses the slog to leg and watches the middle pole get knocked back

SW Masakadza b Hira 8 (11m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Zimbabwe 135/6   E Chigumbura 30* (17b 2x4 2x6)   RM Hira 3.4-0-21-1

19.3

Bates to Chigumbura, OUT, no third time lucky for Elton who falls short of fifty after a perky innings, he could not get this carve past long-off, he was on the back foot and it was slightly slower than the first two deliveries

E Chigumbura c Guptill b Bates 48 (29m 24b 3x4 4x6) SR: 200.00

Zimbabwe 156/7   KO Meth 3* (4b)   MD Bates 3.3-0-28-2

19.5

Bates to Utseya, OUT, walks across and tries to paddle over his shoulder but can't get it over Franklin at fine leg

P Utseya c Franklin b Bates 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 157/8   KO Meth 4* (5b)   MD Bates 3.5-0-29-3
