ZIMBABWE eased to a six-wicket win in Amstelveen after their pacers, led by Tendai Chatara who took his third List A five-wicket haul, skittled Netherlands out for 142 in under 38 overs.

That total looked rather unlikely when Chatara and Chris Mpofu- who finished with three wickets - had Netherlands reeling at 40 for 8, but an unbeaten 64 from Logan van Beek saved the hosts some blushes.

Still, Zimbabwe got to their target with 19.4 overs to spare as Craig Ervine top-scored with 44.

Netherlands openers Wesley Barresi and Stephan Myburgh were the first to go, falling in Chatara's second and third overs respectively.

The score was 22 for 2 then but four overs and six runs later, Chatara struck again, this time twice in two balls to send back both Michael Rippon and Roelof van der for ducks.

When Mpofu took out Ben Cooper for 6, Netherlands had lost five batsmen inside 10 overs, and had to wait till the ninth-wicket pair for some semblance of a partnership.

Van Beek combined with No. 10 Timm van der Gugten (34) to put on 86 runs to delay the inevitable and remained unbeaten on 64 off 83 balls with six fours and one six.
