Match tied
Played at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica (neutral venue)
15 March 2007 (50-over match)
26.1

White to Sibanda, no run, and he starts with an arm ball, beating the forward poke

26.2

White to Sibanda, no run, blocked out on the front foot

26.3

White to Sibanda, 2 runs, far too short and it's cracked off the back foot for a single. Actually, they run well and grab two

26.4

White to Sibanda, no run, too full, worked to midwicket

26.5

White to Sibanda, 1 run, elegantly driven to cover for a single

26.6

White to Matsikenyeri, FOUR, fabulous shot. It was too wide, too full from White but crisply and authoritatively driven by Matsikenyeri along the ground

Zimbabwe 121/3   AR White 1-0-7-0
28.1

White to Sibanda, OUT, gone! Played off the back foot and neatly timed, but he's too far back in his crease and treads on his stumps!

V Sibanda hit wicket b White 67 (121m 84b 9x4 0x6) SR: 79.76

28.2

White to Chigumbura, no run, beaten! The arm-ball...very well bowled, passing by an indecisive forward poke

28.3

White to Chigumbura, no run, good line just outside off, forcing the defensive

28.4

White to Chigumbura, no run, defended solidly

28.5

White to Chigumbura, no run, just short of a length and again the batsman refuses to take a risk, just defending it

28.6

White to Chigumbura, no run, pushed out to cover and there's a wicket maiden

Zimbabwe 128/4   AR White 2-1-7-1
49.1

White to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, full toss, hammered through cover and long off has a chase to his left...and does well, saving four

49.2

White to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, too short, square cut powerfully into the deep

49.3

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!

49.4

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.

49.5

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

49.6

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

EC Rainsford run out 1 (10m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Zimbabwe 221/10   AR White 3-1-15-1
