What a game, we've had here in Harare! The crowd goes quiet, but surely they'd know it's not over yet for Zimbabwe. They can still make it through to the World Cup should they beat UAE in their final Super-Six clash. For now, let's take nothing away from West Indies for this has been a sensational chase. They lost Chris Gayle early, but came storming back through a steady partnership between Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. Then, Marlon Samuels injected momentum before 10 minutes of madness brought Zimbabwe back into the game. But Powell and Nurse showed excellent composure towards the end to help West Indies breeze past.
Marlon Samuels is the Player of the Match for his 80-ball 86. "This is a special team effort," he says. "We know what's at stake. We bowled badly in patches. This was a good wicket, going into the chase, everyone knew we had to come back hard during the chase. Shai Hope is one of my favourite batsman. He's growing as a player, one we should look out for the future."
