Time for the presentation:
Chigumbura: NZ played well, especially upfront but out batting let us down, it was a reasonable target. We laid the foundation and some players managed to get runs but it's something to learn from. Pakistan are coming in six weeks so we need to make sure we pull things up from where we need to learn.
Williamson: The wicket was tough and they bowled very well but the way boys stuck it in and put on that score was competitive. We knew that if we could get one we could put them under pressure. It was a fantastic and well-fought series.
Man of the Match and Series also Williamson: Tough series and adapt to conditions, most pleasing thing for me was learning from each game. We've got a strong squad and we came here looking to be as competitive as we could be in the busy schedule. These are stepping stones for us, there's still the T20 left so we are looking forward to that.
Samrat Ahuja: "Dear Whatmore and Selectors, please find a better death bowler and a good wicket keeping batsman!
That's all we have from the ODI series, in which New Zealand fought back after being down 1-0 to take the series. Do join us again on Sunday for the lone T20 before NZ head to South Africa for more matches. Until then, it's goodbye and good luck from Vishal Dikshit, ciao!
4.38pm It was a great opportunity for Zimbabwe to take the series, esp after winning the first match of the series. They were also in very good position to chase down 274 today. Masakadza anchored their innings early on, but Chibhabha was having troubles rotating the strike. If one factor had to be picked for their loss, it would be the hosts throwing their wickets away right from the beginning
Last wicket for NZ to take the series
MClenaghan has two left. Here he is
Samrat Ahuja: "Zimbabwe will be pondering Where did they lose it today." Gave away wickets on their own?
Two wickets to go, 50 needed in the chase and Panyangara comes out
That pretty much seals the chase now
Williams needs a change of bat
61 from 30, only three wickets to go. Neesham has appeared from somewhere
