HARARE, Zimbabwe – Zimbabwe dominated South Africa to surprisingly win the final of the Twenty20 tri-series at Harare Sports Club by nine wickets on Sunday.
Opener Hamilton Masakadza made his fourth half-century in five innings at the tournament and captain Brendan Taylor spurred the host on with an unbeaten 59 from 41 balls as Zimbabwe cruised to 150-1 in 17.1 overs in reply to South Africa's 146-6.
Masakadza finished 58 not out, sharing an unbroken 118-run partnership with Taylor.
The off-form Proteas, who rested four frontline players for the series, were 67-5 before Faf du Plessis' 66 dragged them to a reasonable score.
South Africa captain Hashim Amla said “hopefully we have learnt some hard lessons” ahead of the team's tour of England starting next month and September's T20 World Cup. – Sapa-AP
