New Zealand openers Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill continued their assault on the Zimbabwe bowlers to set up a comfortable win in the second T20 international at Harare Sports Club yesterday.

McCullum (64) and Guptill (67) put on 120 as the tourists piled up 187 for three after being sent in to bat in a rain-affected 18 overs a side match.

Zimbabwe made a spirited reply but were all out for 154 to give the Kiwis a 34-run win (D/L). Chamu Chibhabha hit 65 off 39 balls for the hosts and shared a 60-run stand with Elton Chigumbura until the latter chipped back a return catch to Nathan McCullum in the tenth over.

McCullum dismissed Charles Coventry in similar fashion two balls later.
