Captain Kane Williamson’s steady knock and an assured performance from the New Zealand bowlers saw the tourists secure a 38-run victory in Friday’s third one-day international against Zimbabwe to wrap up a 2-1 series win. Catch all the highlights of the match here: (SCORECARD)
Williamson recorded his sixth straight score of 50 or more as his 90 guided New Zealand to 273 for six, and although Zimbabwe’s opening stand gave the World Cup finalists a scare, the bowlers held their nerve to restrict the hosts to 235 all out.
New Zealand therefore completed a come-from-behind series victory, having lost the first ODI by seven wickets.
The two teams will meet again at Harare Sports Club on Sunday for a one-off Twenty20 international.
