“It show how good we were” – Zimbabwe skipper
“Coming into the last game, the way we started off in the morning was great to see. Boys show a lot of fight and to get Australia to that sort of score shows how good we were. We head back, a bit of fitness works to be done, training and then off to the T20 World Cup,” said Zimbabwe skipper Regis Chakabva.
