Zimbabwe's U19 cricket coach Prosper Utseya, has set his eyes on the final of the ongoing ODI quadrangular series in South Africa.

To date Zimbabwe has lost two matches, firstly to New Zealand on Friday by two runs and on Sunday to India by 89 runs.

Today, Utseya will be looking at changing the narrative as his team tussles it off with South Africa at the Kingsmead stadium at 09h30 (CAT).

"We hope to win the match with a good  net run-rate so we can give ourselves a chance to be in the  final. We have  trained hard for it," said Utseya.
