Ngarava stars as Zimbabwe beat Ireland in last-over T20 thriller
Zimbabwe players celebrate a wicket.
Ngarava started with two dot balls to Simi Singh and a single, before bowling Barry McCarthy and, after Craig Young was run out off the penultimate delivery, he conceded just one off the last as Ireland finished agonisingly short on 114-9.
Singh (28 not out off 22 balls) had led Ireland's recovery from 88-7 to 106-7 but couldn't quite finish the job.
Zimbabwe's Regis Chakabva was named player of the match for his 47 off 28 balls, with Singh's innings the next best individual score on either side.
The second match is on Sunday, with the remaining three games scheduled for next week.
