Bracewell helps Black Caps beat Zimbabwe

11:44 am on 6 November 2011

The New Zealand cricketers have managed to bowl Zimbabwe out to win the one-off Test at Bulawayo thanks to a five-wicket bag from Doug Bracewell on debut.

The hosts started the day on 61 for two, after the Black Caps set them a stiff target of 366 but were closing in on their first-ever win over New Zealand, reaching 265 for three at tea.

But thanks to an impressive bowling display featuring Bracewell's five wickets and three from Daniel Vettori, the Black Caps bowled Zimbabwe out, beating them by 34 runs.
