The Lady Chevrons have slumped to a 3-1 series defeat at the hands of Ireland after an 85-run defeat in the fourth and final One Day International Match at Harare Sports Club this Monday.
Zimbabwe shocked the world when they beat their more fancied opponents in the first match of the series and that was also the country’s first ever One Day International (ODI) match after getting international test and ODI status in April this year.
Since then, the visitors have flexed their muscles winning the next three matches on the trot.
The latest victory was powered by Amy Hunter who top scored with an unbeaten121 as the Irish posted a staggering 312 for three in their allotted 50 overs.
In reply, Josephine Nkomo who was promoted up the order top scored for the Lady Chevrons with a 68, while there were also starts for captain Mary-Anne Musonda and Ashley Ndiraya but their efforts were not enough as the hosts managed to score 228 runs for 7 in their innings.
If you look at the numbers they show that Ireland consistently batted well and we were not able to break their partnerships and that something we have to work on going forward but overally am pleased with our debut series, said Chevrons Captain Mary-Anne Musonda
It is certainly back to the drawing board as the Lady Chevrons prepare for the T20 World Cup Qualifiers set for November.
