Murtagh gets Ireland over the line
Ireland round off one-day series in Zimbabwe with a win
Ireland’s Tim Murtagh took a career-best four for 32 with the ball to dismiss Zimbabwe for just 187
After losing the previous two games in the three-match series, Ireland pulled the score back to 2-1 with a nervy two-wicket win with Andy McBrine edging the winning runs.
It appeared to be a straightforward chase for the tourists after Murtagh took a career-best four for 32 with the ball to dismiss Zimbabwe for just 187 — Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza both making half-centuries — but they were made to work hard with the bat.
However, after falling to 160 for eight, Murtagh came in with a couple of lusty blows to take Ireland over the line alongside McBrine to round off the series.
