Peter Moor took revenge on Zimbabwe’s former defeat by hosts Singapore by beating 92 * of 60 balls and also rising to the top of the league after league games.
Moor knocked with six sixs and nine fours. His 84-run stand for the second wicket with Tony Munyonga sealed a comfortable chase of Singapore’s 167/7 at 18.4 overs, leaving eight wickets.
Singapore, who had surprised Zimbabwe in its last encounter, again showed a strong performance. S Chandramohan and Tim David added 90 for the second wicket and placed the team in tenth place.
#Match6 | RESULT: @ZimCricketv (168-2 in 18.4 overs – Moor 92*, Munyonga 44, Williams 11*; Prakash 1/26, David 1/26) beat @SingaporeCric (167-7 in 20 overs – Chandramohan 66, David 47, Prakash 22; Jakiel 2/27, Masakadza 1/14, Burl 1/23) by 8 wickets #ZIMvSIN #T20TriNation pic.twitter.com/pEtxv9T96S— Zimbabwe Cricket (@ZimCricketv) October 3, 2019
Opener Chandramohan’s 66 of 47 balls contained four sixs, and although David missed a well-deserved half-century, his 47s had only shot 23 balls with six hits on the fence.
The sharp field from Zimbabwe brought them back into play immediately. Only a late fall from Janak Prakash (22 of 15) prevented a total collapse for the hosts, who only gained 53 runs in the second half of their innings.
The guests got too early in the fourth game for Regis Chakabva, but Moor and Munyonga held out for the next 10 overs, and their determination sealed the victory.
With three wins in four games, Zimbabwe is at the top of the table. Nepal and Singapore have three points each after a win.
