Match State: Delay - Rain interrupted play

They're off again, rain really taking charge of this game, covers

coming back out

The large covers are being removed again. The rain seems to have

abated for the moment

The covers are back on - it's, surprisingly, raining again. The

groundsmen run around to get the heavy things back out in the

middle, stumps sent back

Messrs Bowden and de Silva stroll back to shelter, it seems every

time they get back out there the heavens open up again

The captains are joing the umpires out there

The rain has stopped but the covers are still on

They're shaking hands, Waqar and Heath, that would be game over it


We are still waiting for official confirmation but it looks like

the rain won the day

We have confirmation..the match has been abandoned. Zimbabwe are

through to the Super Six stage of this world cup without having

beaten a single Test nation

The Zimbabwe team come out and start their lap of honour to

rapturous applause from the partisan crowd here at Queens

Pakistan are out of the cup, disappointment registering on the

faces up in their dressing room

England also exit the tournament on the back of this result

The Zimbabwe team make their way slowly around the ground, the

crowd is loving this

Taibu and Streak lead the parade, holding the Zimbabwe flag aloft

So that's all from Queens: Zimbabwe are through, with 14 points

from their 6 matches. They join Australia and India, on 24 and 20

points respectively

England are fourth in the group with 12 points, and Pakistan take 2

from here and get their tally up to 10

Thank you for joining us here at Queens. From CricInfo in Bulawayo,

thank you and good day
