New Zealand Complete ODI Series Whitewash

Zimbabwe-born substitute fielder Colin de Grandhomme helped heap further humiliation on his former countrymates in the 3rd and final ODI between Zimbabwe and New Zealand, as Zimbabwe slumped to a 202-run loss - the largest margin of the series. Led by Brendan McCullum's 88-ball 119, the home side reached a massive 373/8 in their 50 overs, treating the Zimbabwean "attack", further blunted no doubt by the demoralising effect of this series, with complete disdain. In reply, Zimbabwe could muster only 171 before they were bowled out, with Brendan Taylor (65) being the only stand-out performance in another pitiful display. de Grandhomme played a part in three of the wickets, catching both Taylor and Tatenda Taibu and contributing to the run-out of Malcolm Waller. Zimbabwe's players and fans will be glad the ODI portion of the tour is over - but there are still two T20 Internationals to come, which could yet heap further ignominy on the side. Full scorecard below the cut.
New Zealand 373/3 (50 overs; M McCullum 119, Jarvis 2/58), Zimbabwe 171 (44 overs; Taylor 65, Williamson 2/13). New Zealand win by 202 runs.
