Zimbabwe beat Namibia by 7 runs
Right then, that is all we have from this game. The second T20I will be played on Thursday, 19th May. That game is set to begin at 4:30 pm IST (11:00 am GMT). Our coverage, though, will start in advance. Do join us for the same. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Craig Ervine has been named Player of the Match for his innings of 55.
Earlier in the day, after electing to bat first, Zimbabwe put on 153 runs on the board thanks to a brilliant captain's knock from Craig Ervine and a decent cameo from Sikandar Raza. The bowling from Namibia was good with Bernard Scholtz picking up two wickets and skipper Gerhard Erasmus too doing an economical job. Chasing a getable target, Namibia's innings got off to an ideal start but as the match got tighter, the lower order batters just found it tougher to score and Zimbabwe ended up winning the match.
The Zimbabwe bowlers deserve a round of applause and deservingly so. After their batters had put on a below-par total on the board, the opening bowlers too couldn't make inroads inside the Powerplay. However, the introduction of Milton Shumba was the turning point as he picked up three wickets and turned the game on its head. Tendai Chatara then closed out the game well and the hosts have the early lead in the series.
Namibia will be kicking themselves after that loss. They were cruising along at one point and with Divan la Cock set at the crease, they would not have expected to falter like this. After a strong showing with the ball, the openers put Namibia in command but a poor show from the middle order have caused them dearly.
What a start to the series we've had! Zimbabwe have snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to take a 1-0 lead in the five match series.

Gem of a delivery from Chatara! Lands it on a length and outside off, the ball nips back in sharply and thuds into the pads of la Cock. The impact is outside off though and there is not much of an appeal either.
