ZIMBABWE’S senior men’s cricket team returned home to scores of fans at the Robert Mugabe International Airport on Tuesday.
The Chevrons, landed from the T20 World Cup in Australia after finishing bottom of their Super 12 group despite having a good start to the prestigious event. It was a tournament of ups and downs for the men in gold.
Dave Houghton and his men managed to win one match in the Super 12 where they produced one of their best performances in white ball cricket to hand Pakistan their second consecutive one run defeat in the World Cup.

With three points in their first two matches, the Chevrons suffered a heartbreaking three runs loss at the hands of Bangladesh and the defeat was followed by another shock against Netherlands.
The Chevrons concluded their campaign with a heavy defeat at the hands of India on Sunday.
