Commentary

2.20 pm Well, that's that. It's over to Ireland and Netherlands now. Thank you for your company here and we hope you switch over to that match soon enough

Sid: "Is it just me or most matches are ending with a 6. :)"

Brendan Taylor "It was nice to see the guys coming out and playing with freedom. We were a bit more clinical today, even if we did lose a couple of early wickets. We were clear on 12 overs but then later we found out it was 15.4 and that relieved us and Elton was the guy who did it for us. We generally underperformed, we're a far better unit than that and hopefully we get more consistent in the future"

"It's disappointing to lose, again we didn;t have enough runs on the board. The wciket was slow and if we'd got 140-145, we could have done well," says Khurram Khan "Dropped catches also hurt us but we still had our chances early one. We're a young side and this is our first time at this level, so we'd need a bit of patience. We have to work on our fitness and hopefully next time around we go better"

Elton Chigumbura is the Man of the Match "Good to hit boundaries and score runs and win the game for the team and hopefully we have a chance now. I was told to back myself because I know if I get it in my area, I can hit it and it paid off today. For me, it was either win or lose so we give ourselves the best chance. Now we have to wait and hopefully Netherlands win the game and our chances become much higher"

Praveen: "Remember Netherlands can still sneak through if they win with a big margin against ireland"

Brett: "Good effort from zim to put the pressure on ireland. I would say ireland should win , stranger things have happened. Well done Elton..."

2.10 pm It looked to be going all wrong early on as Zimbabwe were looking for too many shots. The strategy did not change when Elton Chigumbura came in at No.6, only he managed to smite mores of them to the boundary. His 53 off 21 balls has given Zimbabwe their best chance of qualifying to the main stage

swaroop: "Now the equation is simple- Ireland need a win.God! I love simple equations."

Kamran Shazad to Chigumbura, SIX runs, fullish on middle and off, Chigumbura clears his front leg and pounds this for six straight down the ground to get his fifty and wins the game. Zimbabwe top the group with a better run-rate than Ireland, at the moment
13.3
3
Kamran Shazad to Maruma, 3 runs, fullish on middle and leg, whipped away towards the deep midwicket boundary. Chips down the track to get momentum into the stroke and the man pulls out a well-timed boot

raj: "Seems like Zimbabwe are going to make it. Chigumbura's innings might take them home within the stipulated 15.4 overs. The Two teams have made the dead rubber into kind of an interesting Game. This T20 World Cup Rocks!!!" Only if Ireland lose

13.2

Amjad Javed to Chigumbura, SIX runs, leg cutter and he has spotted it so very early! Stayed back and slapped it over the head of long-on. There's his power on display again

Amjad Javed to Chigumbura, no run, length ball with a bit of room outside off. Chigumbura set himself up for the swat but he gets it off the toe. Bat turns in his hand
