Team B: 157 for 6)
Team C: batted on, 176 for 4
Team C won by seven wickets.
Both teams in this match at Harare Sports Club lost to Team A yesterday, so it was basically a battle to get off the bottom of the log.
Team B, led by Prosper Utseya, went in first and were given a good start by Vusimuzi Sibanda (17) and Tinotenda Mawoyo (33), who made 50 in less than eight overs.
This laid a good foundation for Elton Chigumbura, who was in superb form from the start. He hammered 70 not out off 41 balls, including four fours and five sixes, without getting too much help from his partners. The most successful bowler was Tapiwa Mufudza, who was only given two overs, but took two wickets for five runs.
Team C, led by Brendan Taylor, had a target of 158 – difficult under normal circumstances, but probably not if Team B fielded as badly as they did yesterday. Taylor took the Essex player, Mark Pettini, in with him to open, and they put on 40 in less than six overs, mostly to Pettini, before Taylor miscued a drive and departed for 6. The fielding, if not inspired, was at least much better than in the first match.
Sean Williams batted so well that he outshone Pettini, and none of the bowlers were able to contain the batsmen. The pair virtually won the match for their side, putting on 92 in just over 10 overs. Pettini eventually retired on 67 off 51 balls, while Williams made 54 off 32. Malcolm Waller saw his team home and finished with 30 off 13 balls.
