Netherlands won the toss and chose to bat first in the series-deciding third World Cup Super League one-day international against Zimbabwe in Harare on Saturday.

The Dutch won the first match when Paul van Meekeren smashed a six off the penultimate ball and a Wessly Madhevere hat-trick helped Zimbabwe level the series with a last-ball one-run victory.
