Chevrons Win Again

Zimbabwe Chevrons extended their series lead to 2-0 after beating the United Arab Emirates in second One-Day International by 4 runs via Duckworth Lewis method (D/L). 

It was a match which experienced a lot of stoppages as it rained the greater part of the day.

Chevrons won the toss again and elected to field as the wicket conditions at Harare sports club seemed to be the same as the first ODI.

The bowling attack started like a house on fire as Kyle Jarvis took all the  3 wickets and UAE  were on the ropes as they were  12/3  inside the first 7  Overs.


The men from the Middle East managed to revive their innings with a solid 4th wicket partnership between Ghulam  Shabbar and Muhammed  Usman  which matched to get 109 runs before the rain interrupted play.

When play was resumed the overs were revised and the match was reduced to a 35 over game. Zimbabwe bowlers managed to get more joy as Jarvis picked another wicket finishing with career best of 4-17. 

Donald Tiripano pick up 3 wickets while Tendai Chatara  only managed to get 1 wicket.

UAE  only managed to add 48 runs to their total finishing off their Innings with 169-9.

Chevrons needed 210 runs according to the revised total and struggled with the bat as they lost early wickets of Soloman Mire for a cheaply 14 runs, Sean Williams and Craig Ervine also perished modestly as they only put 17 and 13 runs respectively.

Regis Chikabva who is in a rich vein of form played a crucial role for the host by anchoring the innings scoring 78 runs off 101 balls.


Skipper PJ Moore played a captains knock as he made sure they stayed at par with  D/L  scoring 45 runs off 33 balls which earned him man of the match. The umpire eventual stopped play with 3 overs left due to bad light and Zimbabwe winning the match.
