It’s all over for the Chevrons. The Zimbabwe cricket team was in battle Friday and much was expected of them but the hard-working Chevrons fell to the Black Caps in the one-day series decider.

Zimbabwe were highly competitive but an understrength New Zealand fought hard to close out a one-day international cricket series victory over Zimbabwe in the decider.

The Black Caps won game three by 38 runs, successfully defending 273-6 as they won the series 2-1 to remain the world's third-ranked ODI side heading to South Africa next week.

The Chevrons have been beaten by 38 runs by New Zealand at the Harare Sports Club this afternoon to surrender the three ODI Series 2-1.

The Zimbabweans batted first and set up a target of 235 from their allotted 50 overs which the Black Cats easily overhauled after a score of 273 for four.

Fans were expecting more of the team considering the Zimbabweans had won the first ODI.

Now to football.

Chikuku Super Cup action roared into life this afternoon with a game at Rufaro Stadium between Harare City and Buffaloes.

In the end, it was last season’s runners up, Harare City, who sailed through to the quarter finals after a 4-1 spanking of Buffaloes.

Action continues tomorrow. But the pick of the crop is on Sunday when Highlanders are away to neighbours How Mine, ironically at Barbourfields Stadium where the two teams share the home venue.

However, the chairman of the Highlanders Supporters Association Harare chapter Moderm Ngwenya says How Mine are in trouble.

Ngwenya mockingly says their neighbours are small boys that will not trouble his beloved Bosso.

The other most interesting fixture is the one at the National Sports Stadium Sunday between Caps United and ZPC Kariba.

Caps United spokesperson Joyce Kapote believes Caps United are on their way to the Chibuku Super Cup title.
