CWC 2015 LIVE - IRL beat ZIM In Another Minnow Thriller At Hobart

#IRL vs #ZIM, #BelleriveOval, #Hobart

What a scorcher!!

Chasing a massive 332 to win, Zimbabwe took on the Irish bowlers and nearly crossed the line...

The last 10-15 overs see-sawed between the two teams jostling for a win.
In the 49th over, #TawandaMupariwa smacked #KevinOBrien for 4,4,6 off consecutive deliveries to tilt the scales back in Zim's favour and it was a case who blinks first

7 runs in 6 balls needed, 2 tail ender wickets in hand.

However, #AlexCusack held his nerve to bowl a tight last over and capture two Zim wickets to win their Pool B match by 5 runs.

Magnificent batting and bowling performances from both sides.

The minnows have decided to show #ICC their value and any thoughts of downsizing the #CWC in future editions must be scrapped outright. The kind of display these teams have given over the last three weeks is ample testimony to their ability to perform at the big stage!
