First game almost over with the west indies having the upper hand. Pakistan need 126 runs with 4 wickets in hand and 17 overs remaining. required run rate of 7.41 its going to be a tough ask from here.

They have just lost Ul Haq and Akmal in 2 balls and Yousif and ul-Haq only scoring 37 and 36 respectivly its going to be a tough ask.

earlier in the day Samuels smashed 63 with 5 fours and 3 sixes with Smith chipping in with 32 off 15. Anjum was pick of the bowlers with 3 for 44.

Smith also has 3 for 23 so far off 7 overs.

Well it's the obvious clash of the ***ans with Ireland taking on Zimbabwe at Sabina Park. Ireland have made 221-8 from their 50 overs with Aussie import Jeremy Bray batting all the way through for an unbeaten 114. Certainly in with a chance if we can bowl like we did in the warm up games.

It's getting away from us now, we need a couple of quick wickets or else it should be plain sailing for Zimbabwe here.

Kudos to both teams for serving up a true classic. Fantastic match.

Put me in mind of my fave poem :

Sir Henry Newbolt - Vitaї Lampada:-

There's a breathless hush on The Close to-night
Ten to make and the match to win
A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play, and the last man in.
And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat.
Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
But his captain's hand on his shoulder smote
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"

The sand of the desert is sodden red-
Red with the wreck of the square that broke
The gatling's jammed and the colonel dead,
And the regiment blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed its banks,
And England's far, and Honour a name,
But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks-
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"

This is the word that year by year,
While in her place the school is set,
Every one of her sons must hear,
And none that hears it dare forget.
This they all with a joyful mind
Bear through life like a torch in flame,
And falling fling to the host behind -
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"

105-8 now, if we don't get a partnership like we saw in the SA game this one could be ours for the taking.

All out for 132 for Pakistan, granted batting isn't our strong point but 133 is surely chaseable. if that even is a word

It would certainly bring more attention toward the World Cup, and make it more exciting.

These wins will provide invaluable experience to the teams, especially Ireland.

Bangladesh are funny aren't they? They can get flogged one game, then the next turn it all around and beat on of the best nations. Remember last year or the year before when they knocked of Australia?! And this year India! Obviously they have the talent, the only problem is nurturing it.
