Zimbabwe A go down in the first game to UAE in the five match unofficial One Day series.
Zimbabwe A lost to United Arab Emirates by four wickets with 28 balls remaining. Zimbabwe set out for 224-9 in 50 overs and the hosts in response scored 225-6 taking them to a very comfortable win over the tourist. UAE lead the 5 match series 1 – 0. Zimbabwe will have to tighten up and bounce back in the next match if they are to stay in the series and losing the second will only put more pressure of the relatively inexperienced side captained by Chamunorwa Chibhabha.
