We hope you've enjoyed our coverage of this breathless match. Don't forget to read Martin Williamson's bulletin and our gallery. Do join us tomorrow for England versus New Zealand and Netherlands' match against South Africa. From me, Will Luke, and Andrew McGlashan, it's good night.

Zimbabwe looked to be home and dry - and Kevin Curran, their coach, looks disconsolate in the dressing room. He is severely unimpressed. A terrific comeback from Ireland - particularly Andre Botha's overs at the end, cutting Zimbabwe's momentum dead. The World Cup is well and truly alive.

White to Matsikenyeri, OUT, drives, misses and it's a tie! What a match; what an incredible last 10 overs. Only the third tie in World Cup history - all three have involved an African nation - and Ireland jump in delight

Last ball

White to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, well what a mad ball. Short, wide, cut just behind backward point who made a brilliant attempt to catch it. They go for a single, in comes the throw - but the batsman appears to run in front of his stumps...and he's home safe! My word this is madness

1
White to Rainsford, 1 run, driven past cover - and he gets the single! This gets Matsikenyeri back on strike - not a good ball from White. Not a good over.

This is epic. 4 from 3

But Matsikenyeri is now off strike

49.3
1
White to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, full toss, spooned to midwicket - but no! Dropped? The man came in and appeared to just stop in his tracks, the ball dropping short!
49.2
2
White to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, too short, square cut powerfully into the deep
49.1
2
White to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, full toss, hammered through cover and long off has a chase to his left...and does well, saving four

Rainsford the No.11 for Zimbabwe, at the non-striker's end. White's back into the attack
