1st ODI - Harare
UAE - 110 (Mohammad Boota 36; Chatara 3-25, Kyle Jarvis 2-11)
ZIM - 111/3 23.1 overs (Chris Ervine 51*)
A clinical bowling performance from Zimbabwe handed them an easy win over the United Arab Emirates. Seamers Kyle Jarvis and Tendai Chatara produced incisive spells that saw them scythe through the visiting team's top order. A 76-ball vigil at No.7 from Mohammad Boota saw the innings stretch to the 45th over before they were eventually all out for 110.
The Chevrons made short work of the modest total with Chris Ervine leading the way with a rapid fifty. Opener Regis Chakavba chipped in with 38.
The two teams will play the 2nd ODI of this 4-match series at the same venue on the 12th of April.
