Ireland completed a clean sweep of five T20 wins over Zimbabwe by taking victory over their hosts by five wickets in Harare on Friday.

Gaby Lewis and Orla Prendergast both made 42 as their second wicket partnership of 64 helped the tourists reach 138-7 off their 20 overs.

Openers Kelis Ndlovu (32) and Mary-Anne Musonda (52) put on 77 for the first wicket to give Zimbabwe hope.

Wickets fell steadily thereafter however as the hosts fell short.

Laura Delany (3-17) and Prendergast (3-24) were the pick of the Irish bowlers.

Ireland rallied from the early dismissal of Amy Hunter for one in the third over courtesy of Lewis, Prendergast and Delany, who contributed 18.

Ndlovu took 3-20, with Nomvelo Sibanda and Precious Marange claiming two wickets apiece.
