Matabeleland 253 and 71 for 1 (Siziba 40*) beat Manicaland 157 and 165 by 9 wickets

Wisdom Siziba, Matabeleland's opener, scored an unbeaten 40 to guide his side to a nine-wicket victory over Manicaland on the third day of their Logan Cup match at the Bulawayo Athletic Club.

Siziba struck seven fours as Matabeleland reached their target of 70 in only 56 minutes. With nothing to lose, Siziba was not his usual cautious self and from the outset had a go at the bowling. Matabeleland lost their only wicket in the run chase when offspinner Stuart Matsikenyeri had Duffin taken at first slip by Steven Wright for 17.

Afterwards, the two provinces played in a limited-overs match, an idea mooted by Phil Simmons, Zimbabwe's coach, who was watching.
