Bulawayo: Campbell on Saturday came up with a sterling knock of 96 off 108 balls to launch Zimbabwe on their way to an intimidating total of 273 for five in 50 overs at the Queen's Club. This was followed by Grant Flower's swift knock of 45 of 41 balls, thus ensuring Campbell's knock paid dividends, while skipper Heath Streak dealt a few lusty blows towards the fag end of the innings by striking Astle for two consecutive sixes.

Alistair Campbell, opening the innings with Marillier gave the home team a sound start by putting on 83 runs for the first wicket. After his departure Campbell strung useful partnerships with Carlisle and Andy Flower before departing, four runs short of what would have been a magnificent hundered.Nevertheless after his departure Grant Flower took on the responsibility of holding up one end while putting on useful partnerships with Andy, Whittall and Streak.

Astle went for plenty in his last two overs with both Grant and Heath turning on the heat to give Zimbabwe a commanding total.
