Adam Zampa spins a web around Zimbabwe

Cameron Green and Adam Zampa picked up eight wickets between them while David Warner came good with a half-century as Australia coasted to a five-wicket victory against Zimbabwe in the opening ODI of the three-match series versus Zimbabwe in Townsville. The hosts needed just over 33 overs to chase down the lowly target of 201. At 185 for 4, in the 43rd over, Zimbabwe were primed to at least end up with a total close to 250. But Madhevere fell to a googly from Zampa while Chakabva holed out to the fielder at mid-on as the Chevrons lost the plot.
