ICC World Cup - 13th match, Group D

West Indies v Zimbabwe

West Indies won by 6 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

15.1

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, poked down behind gully

15.2

Smith to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, driven forward

15.3

Smith to Taylor, 2 runs, tucked off the legs through the on-side, a nice shot, and there's just a hint of momentum building into the Zimbabwe innings

15.4

Smith to Taylor, 1 wide, down off

15.4

Smith to Taylor, 1 wide, oh dear, a loose shot to a loose delivery down off - and that's a wide, in fact

15.4

Smith to Taylor, no run, left alone outside off, quiet leave that one

15.5

Smith to Taylor, no run, played off the toes to the man at short midwicket

15.6

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, dabbed down to gully and that would have been close for Matsikenyeri with a direct hit, but he made his ground easily in the end

Zimbabwe 57/3   DR Smith 1-0-7-0

17.1

Smith to Taylor, no run, defended forward

17.2

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, a touch of width and that's cut - without much room for his arms, a short-arm cut if that makes sense - to point

17.3

Smith to Matsikenyeri, no run, steps down the track, but not out of his crease, and defends that one forward

17.4

Smith to Matsikenyeri, OUT, the first sign of aggression from Matsikenyeri and it doesn't come off - looking to strike that over mid-on but it hardly gets up whatsoever and that's an easy catch for Daren Powell at chest height

S Matsikenyeri c Powell b Smith 16 (36m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.25

17.5

Smith to Williams, no run, a quiet start for Williams, working that down off the back foot into the covers

17.6

Smith to Williams, no run, full and that's well dug out

Zimbabwe 59/4   DR Smith 2-0-8-1

19.1

Smith to Taylor, no run, driven to mid-off

19.2

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, plenty of width on offer from the bowler and that's played down well off the back foot with a clean, crisp cut

19.3

Smith to Williams, no run, driven straight to the man at mid-off

19.4

Smith to Williams, 1 run, steered away behind point and that's Williams off the mark. He's shown more restraint so far than he did in Zimbabwe's opener against Ireland

19.5

Smith to Taylor, no run, played into the covers

19.6

Smith to Taylor, no run, moves over to the off-side to look to straight-drive that one and ends up defending, the ball drops down. They look for a run, but decide against it

Zimbabwe 62/4   DR Smith 3-0-10-1

26.1

Smith to Taylor, SIX, top shot, it goes all the way with very little effort as Taylor goes over long on with a perfectly straight bat and easily clears the ropes - first maximum of the innings - and he picked out the shortest boundary

26.2

Smith to Taylor, no run, played into the pads

26.3

Smith to Taylor, 1 wide, slower ball, actually grips a little and goes down the leg side

26.3

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, comes across his stumps, works into the leg side and they set off...a direct hit from Marlon Samuels at square leg would have found Williams well short of his ground

26.4

Smith to Williams, 2 runs, driven off the back foot, rare misfield at cover allows them to pick up a brace although the running is again a little to close for comfort

26.5

Smith to Williams, no run, slightly wide, Williams doesn't bother playing

26.6

Smith to Williams, 1 run, pushed down to third man, good over for Zimbabwe with brought 10 runs

Zimbabwe 88/4   DR Smith 4-0-21-1

28.1

Smith to Taylor, 1 run, worked into the leg side, easy single as midwicket runs round to square leg

28.2

Smith to Williams, FOUR, cracked! another fine shot from Williams as Smith drops slightly short - although it wasn't a bad ball - and the left-hander plays another fine drive through the covers off the back foot

28.3

Smith to Williams, 1 run, this backfoot drive finds the man on the fence at deep cover

28.4

Smith to Taylor, 1 leg bye, takes the pad out to square leg

28.5

Smith to Williams, no run, touch of extra bounce, comes back into Williams who plays it well out to point

28.6

Smith to Williams, 1 run, good use of the wrists as he takes this from outside off stump to the left of mid on as Zimbabwe bring up their 100

Zimbabwe 100/4   DR Smith 5-0-28-1
