ZIM Vs RSA Match Highlights 

RSA vs ZIM: T20 WC 2022

The Match started after a long wait due to the rain and rain certainly made the players and the umpires wait for a long time, but the good news is that the match will be reduced from 20 overs to 9 overs.

During the death overs, Zimbabwe was able to score 27 runs for the loss of zero wickets. The highest partnership of the innings was between Madhevere and Milton Shumba who contributed 60 runs to the innings.
