Second one-day international, Harare

Zimbabwe 227-9 (50 overs): Dhururu 46, Musonda 41; Kelly 4-4-35

Ireland 202-9 (43 overs): Lewis 42, Hunter 34; Ndlovu 3-36

Match tied (DLS method)


Ireland had to settle for a tied ODI against Zimbabwe after failing to score a run from the final ball in Harare.

The hosts made 227-9 before Ireland were set a target of 203 from 43 overs following a rain delay.

Requiring six runs off the final over, Jane Maguire and Ava Canning managed to score four off the first three balls.

However, it became one from the last ball and Maguire was stumped by Chiedza Dhururu to end the game with Ireland leading the series 1-0.

Zimbabwe openers Dhururu (46) Mary-Anne Musonda (41) laid a strong foundation with a partnership of 92.

The hosts failed to build on that and Arlene Kelly took 4-35 as Ireland aimed to wrap up the three-match series.

Another impressive opening stand – this time 84 from Gaby Lewis (42) and Leah Paul (34) – ensured a strong start for the Irish before the rain interruption and a new DLS target.

Rebecca Stokell made 30 but it went down to the dramatic final over from Loreen Tshuma and she impressed, conceding just five runs to earn her side a tie.

Kelis Ndlovu finished with 3-36.

The sides will meet again for the third and final ODI on Tuesday.
