Zimbabwe knock Scotland out of T20 World Cup

George Munsey's 51-ball 54 was to no avail as Zimbabwe registered a comfortable, even if at times slightly jittery, five-wicket win to push Scotland out of the T20 World Cup and make theirway for the first time to the second stage of the tournament. Chasing a lowly 133 for a win, Zimbabwe's chase was set up by a 64-run fourth wicket stand between Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza as the side polished off the target with nine balls to spare.

Brief Scores: Scotland 132/6 in 20 overs (George Munsey 54, Callum MacLeod 25; Tendai Chatara 2-14, Richard Ngarava 2-28) lost to Zimbabwe 133/5 in 18.3 overs (Craig Ervine 58, Sikandar Raza 40; Josh Davey 2-16) by 5 wickets.
