Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Paul Stirling, 2.6 ov), 2-79 (William Porterfield, 20.1 ov), 3-217 (Ed Joyce, 38.4 ov), 4-276 (Kevin O'Brien, 44.1 ov), 5-308 (Gary Wilson, 47.2 ov), 6-319 (John Mooney, 47.5 ov), 7-322 (Niall O'Brien, 48.4 ov), 8-326 (Andy Balbirnie, 49.1 ov)
2.6 to PR Stirling, short and wide, that shot was on, but he ended up slashing underneath the ball and hit it at catchable height to point, just over the head, and Williams takes it easily, with two hands, timing his jump just right. 16/1
38.4 to EC Joyce, gone. Another slower full-toss, and Joyce cleared his front leg to hit it over mid-on, maybe, ended up toe-ending it and popping the simplest of catches to short midwicket. 217/3
44.1 to KJ O'Brien, slower ball wide outside off, and Kev goes for the big hit, only succeeds in skewing it high in the air, simple catch to the man at long-on. 276/4
48.4 to NJ O'Brien, well bowled. Sees him come down the track, making room, and bowls a quick bouncer, across the batsman. He takes his eyes off the ball momentarily, is caught between pulling and uppercutting, and ends up top-edging a simple catch to third man. 322/7
20.1 to WTS Porterfield, gone. Porterfield's agonising innings comes to an end. Williams fires it across the left-hander, who makes room and tries to hit it over extra cover. Ends up scooping a high, simple catch to mid-off. 79/2
47.2 to GC Wilson, got him. The previous shot brought about a field change, with square leg going back and the off-side sweeper coming in to cover point. Wilson made room to slap the full ball over the fielder, didn't get elevation, and he timed his jump well to take a good overhead catch. 308/5
47.5 to JF Mooney, full and straight, you miss, I hit. Crashed into middle and leg as Mooney cleared his front leg to slog-sweep over the leg side. 319/6

TOTAL49.3 Ov (RR: 6.58, 221 Mins)326
Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Sikandar Raza, 7.5 ov), 2-32 (Chamu Chibhabha, 8.4 ov), 3-41 (Hamilton Masakadza, 10.3 ov), 4-74 (Solomon Mire, 16.4 ov), 5-223 (Brendan Taylor, 37.3 ov), 6-259 (Craig Ervine, 42.3 ov), 7-300 (Sean Williams, 46.5 ov), 8-305 (Tinashe Panyangara, 47.4 ov), 9-325 (Regis Chakabva, 49.1 ov), 10-326 (Tawanda Mupariwa, 49.3 ov)
8.4 to CJ Chibhabha, That's a skier and William Porterfield pulls off a smart catch, Cusack exults. Both the Zimbabwe openers are back in the hut. Chibhabha comes down the track, manufactures a length back and looks to launch it over the covers. But he can only skew it up in the air. Porterfield tracks back from point and completes a fine catch. 32/2
37.3 to BRM Taylor, uh, oh. Taylor's gone. Big, big moment, this. This was full outside off. Taylor was looking to lift it over cover. It was the slower one, he was through his shot too early, and the bat turned in his hands and it looped to mid-on instead. 223/5
49.1 to RW Chakabva, and he strikes! Chakabva gets on one knee and looks to swipe across the line from outside off. It's the offcutter, and he inside-edges that into his off stump. 325/9
49.3 to T Mupariwa, and he's gone. Ireland have won this. Goes for the big hit over the bowler's head, this was another slower ball, I think, and he didn't get hold of it at all. Got more elevation than distance, and Porterfield, running in from long-on, took it calmly, a captain's catch. Ireland are still in with a definite chance of making the quarterfinals.. 326/10
7.5 to Sikandar Raza, Mooney strikes. Raza is gone. This was full and swinging away outside off, Raza throws his bat at a drive, the ball catches the outside edge and flies to slip, where Stirling dives sharply to his left to snag the ball. 32/1
47.4 to T Panyangara, fullish on leg stump, and Panyangara holes out, clears his front leg and goes over the top, doesn't connect nearly as well as he would have liked and long-on comes in from the boundary to take a good low catch. 305/8
10.3 to H Masakadza, KOB goes up for a caught behind appeal. The umpire raises his finger. Has Hamilton Masakadza nicked off? He does not opt for the review and trudges back. Fuller and outside off, he pushes at it, the ball may have slipped off an outside edge to the keeper. Yes, Snicko picks up a spike, vindicating the umpire's decision. 41/3
46.5 to SC Williams, taken! Or is it? That is brilliantly judged by Mooney on the rope. Or is it? It's full on off stump, and Williams clears his front leg to swing it away over the leg side, hits it well, but picks out Mooney at deep midwicket, he catches it over his head, he's leaning back very close to the rope, aaaaaaand, they're checking if he's touched the boundary cushion. Has he? Hasn't he? Is there a bit of movement? Or is it just the shadow of his foot? They're zooming in, and still it looks indecisive. They've given it out, and is it because Williams had already left the ground?. 300/7
16.4 to SF Mire, gottim. Zimbabwe slump to 74 for 4. This was a bit short and outside off, accompanied by some extra bounce, which foils Mire's timing. Mire does not get hold of the cut and picks out Cusack at backward point. 74/4
42.3 to CR Ervine, oh my god. Ervine looked to reverse-sweep a middle-stump ball, and popped a simple catch straight to the man at short third man. 259/6
