Commentator: Justin Smyth

Zimbabwe battled all the way and whilst Williams was out in the middle, it looked like they would complete the victory. Although after losing Williams and Moor in one over, the innings seemed to fall away. With Chigumbura being carried off, with a suspected injury to his leg, its not been the best of warm ups for Zimbabwe. For the Wolves, I'm sure that they will be delighted with the win. The bowlers shared the wickets between them. Although it was probably Cameron-Dow's contribution with the bat that was the difference between the teams. So the Wolves complete the Full Member double this Summer.

The ODI series between Ireland and Zimbabwe starts on Monday, so hopefully you'll be able to join us then. Until then, this is Justin saying goodnight from Eglinton.

Chase to Tiripano, OUT, Its a slow ball and Tiripano looks to muscle the ball over the square leg boundary. He can't get enough power on the shot and McCarthy runs along the boundary to complete the catch. The Wolves win!

  • Graham Kennedy10-0-47-1

Ndlovu is the last man in and he is on strike. Chase to bowl

McCarthy to Jarvis, OUT, another wicket goes down! Its yet another slower ball, this time Jarvis does get some bat on the ball. It picks out Thompson at long-on and he takes the catch

KM Jarvis c Thompson b McCarthy 2 (11m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

McCarthy to Jarvis, no run, its a slower ball bouncer, Jarvis is through the shot too quickly and it bounces just before it gets through to the keeper
McCarthy to Tiripano, 1 run, clips the ball into the legside, McCarthy has to run after the ball himself to keep them to one
McCarthy to Tiripano, FOUR, make that back to back boundaries! McCarthy goes short but its too far outside off-stump, sits up and is hammered to the point boundary
