They were beaten by Zimbabwe by five wickets in the final group match with former Ayr professional Sikander Raza the difference and the Man of the Match. (Match Centre - www.t20worldcup.com/match/100478). Raza scored a century against us in Ayr's title winning season in 2014 before being dismissed by Loz for 130 (Scorecard crichq.com/matches/160629 )
