7:42pm What an innings, and what form. Stirling is doing whatever he likes at the moment. Unbeaten 83 off 36 balls, hitting sixes every possible side of the ground and he's taken them home with 2.1 overs left. That's a big margin on a normal day, today it's one-sixth of the available overs for Ireland. Sensational. Zimbabwe did well after the rain break. It almost helped them open up and seize control in some sense, after the lost early wickets. Ervine and Williams accelerated in superb style, but it seems like they couldn't have done anything that would have been enough for Stirling. Humongous win. Thanks for joining us and we'll see you soon.

Jarvis to Stirling, 1 run, low full toss on middle stump, shuffles and nudges this to mid-on with one hand off the bat. Scampers through for the run and that is 1-0 for Ireland

Jarvis to Stirling, SIX runs, bam! Short ball again, but this one is picked up. Outside off, walks into line and gets it over the square leg boundary

Jarvis to Balbirnie, 1 run, dropped. Bouncer at leg stump. Slower ball, it appears. Slams this with a hook, straight to the fielder at fine leg. Who doesn't have to move at all. It's in his hands and then he loses all composure and grasses this
