That will be all from us for this game. Curtains down on one of the finest Associate batsmen's career, and Zimbabwe finish with a thumping win. This is Abhishek Purohit signing off, on behalf of George Binoy. Have a look at Liam Brickhill's bulletin.

Man of the Match is Ervine: "I got off to a great start today, we weren't behind the rate, it was good. We just thought, me and Elton, if we bat through the next ten overs, it will leave us in a good position. I just tried to pick the gaps in the Powerplay, I normally don't hit them a long way. Playing in different conditions is a good experience, against the good sides. Spent a lot of time in the middle, learnt a lot of things."

Elton: "Today we have to take lot of positives, with the bat especially. Just not giving up wickets easily, we have to work hard on that, and batting in the first ten overs. Am happy with the bowling, cannot ask for more. good atmosphere here, loved the crowds."

Steve Tikolo: "We are disappointed. We wanted to put up a good performance. No meaningful partnerships. If the younger guys can take the positives that will be a good thing. I have enjoyed every moment of my career, there have been ups and downs. Lot of pride in playing for the country, each time I have walked out. Looking at coaching jobs, maybe back home, I am playing for Southern Rocks in Zimbabwe."

Hang on for the presentation.

Another thrashing for Kenya. They have been the worst of the Associates on display in the World Cup. Mpofu got the breathrough, and then the spinners worked their way to seven wickets. Kenya were nowhere in the game, and Zimbabwe will be pleased to sign off with a big win. They were expected to beat Kenya and Canada, and they have done that convincingly.

Umair: "@ Mark, better to say it this way: Kenya scores 264 vs Aus and struggling to reach 150 vs Zim, what is up with Australia in this tournament?"
