The team finished without even a single point after heavily losing their final match to neighbours South Africa on Sunday.

South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl, but Zimbabwe could only manage a paltry 103 runs with only four players – Ashley Ndirara with 22 runs, Nonhlanhla Nyathi with 21, Pelagia Mujaji on 20, and Sinikiwe Mpofu on 13 managing to reach double figures.

Even the usually reliable team captain, Sharne Meyers, could only manage three runs as Zimbabwe fell short against the South Africans.Although Zimbabwe narrowly lost to the United States of America by just one run, the defeat by South Africa was the final straw in their way out of the 10 team competition.
