Zim clinch last ball win

Star Online Report

A last ball six by Vusi Sibanda helped Zimbabwe beat Netherlands in the qualifying round of the World T20 in Sylhet today.

Zimbabwe chased down the 140-run total set by the Dutch on the last ball after a well-constructed 49 from skipper Brendan Taylor steered their chase.

Earlier, Netherlands struggled to 140 after a top order collapse in the face of some tight bowling against Zimbabwe in Sylhet today.

Tom Cooper anchored the innings for the Dutch, hitting 72 off 58 balls including nine fours and one six.

The match is a must-win one for Zimbabwe, who lost their first match of the tournament against Ireland by three wickets.

Netherlands, on the other hand, defeated UAE in their first match by six wickets, and boasts a healthy run-rate to claim the top spot of the group.

Only one team from the four-member group will go to the next round of the tournament.
