Zimbabwe lose T20 to NZ despite scoring 200
New Zealand secured a dramatic five-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in the final Twenty20 international yesterday to condemn the visitors to a winless tour.
Kane Williamson (20) scored 14 runs in the final over to seal the win with just two balls to spare after half centuries from openers James Franklin (60) and Rob Nicol (56).
The result capped a dismal tour for Zimbabwe, who proved competitive in two T20 matches, but were outclassed by New Zealand in a one-off Test and three ODIs.
The tourists saved their best for the final match, choosing to bat after winning the toss and scoring 200 for two, their best ever T20 score, at Hamilton's Seddon Park.
