Zimbabwe back in contention

HARARE - Zimbabwe would be monitoring today’s match between Australia and South Africa with keen interest after the series was thrown wide open following the hosts’ historic three-wicket win over the Aussies on Sunday.

It was Zimbabwe’s first win over Australia in 31 years.

Sunday’s stunning win saw the hosts claiming their first set of points but still anchor the log table with four points, one behind Australia while South Africa are on the summit with nine points.

The locals would be hoping that neighbours South Africa carry on with the form they displayed in their first match against Australia and then dig deep to beat the Proteas on Thursday.

Zimbabwe’s bowling department has been consistent throughout the tri-series but Stephen Mangongo’s men have been let down by the batters who on all occasions gave away their wickets cheaply.

Should the bowlers replicate their form on Thursday and the batsmen build on meaningful partnership, South Africa will be up for a second upset of the tournament.
