The best game of the world cup so far has seen Ireland tie with Zimbabwe. What a match is was… the Zimbos needed about 20 from 26 balls, but a lucky run out, some tight bowling, and – lets face it – some selfish batting from Matsikenyeri resulted in them requiring nine from the last over.

Some dodgy bowling saw the Zimbos tie the game with a ball to spare before part-time off spinner White bowled one decent ball which beat the batsman and resulted in a run out at the bowler’s end.

A crying shame the Irish didn’t win, however a tie is almost as good, and probably more than they ever expected. The Irish do, however, win the award for the best fans of the tournament so far. Never before have so many very pale skinned celtic folk danced so drunk round a Carribean island!
