Brendan Taylor scored seven runs off 12 balls as Zimbabwe went down to Ireland by seven wickets in a rain-affected final one-day international at Stormont on Monday.
This was Taylor‘s last international match.
The decorated Zimbabwean batsman announced that he will retire from international cricket after Monday’s final ODI against Ireland.
The result meant the three-match series ended level at one-all.
Rain and a damp outfield delayed the start by over an hour, resulting in the match being reduced to 42 overs per side.
Ireland comfortably chased down Zimbabwe’s total of just 131 runs off 34 overs.
Sean Ervine and Wessly Madhevere were the only Zimbabwe players to score more than 10.
Zimbabwe now head to Scotland for three Twenty20 internationals, starting on Wednesday.
