    Nicholas Pooran, the captain of West Indies, says that they had a chat regarding their batting as enough was enough and the batters have to take more responsibility. He sounds happy with the way Rovman Powell and Akeal Hosein formed a partnership. On his plan to bowl Kyle Mayers up front, Pooran replies that he is the one who swings the ball but he failed to get it right. Pooran counts on the experience of Jason Holder and heaps his praise on Alzarri Joseph who has been in exceptional form since the beginning of 2022. Pooran is disappointed with his personal form and says that he is working hard. Hopes to find his form in the next game.
    Regis Chakabva, the stand-in captain of Zimbabwe, says that his bowlers stuck to the plans and hit the right areas, especially the spinners. Further says that they tried to rush through the overs and praises his bowlers for pulling things back. Mentions that they were happy to restrict West Indies to 150-odd runs but credits Joseph for the way he bowled. Shares that the pitch played very well and the conditions remained the same throughout. Tells that they are still confident and will look to bounce back.
    Alzarri Joseph is the Player of the Match for his career-best figures in T20Is - 4-0-16-0. The speedster says that this win is very encouraging but wants to stay focused and win the next match as well. Tells that he always tries to keep it tight and pick early wickets.

    The Presentation ceremony...
    Earlier in the game, Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bat first and the top order did get off to a decent start. Kyle Mayers and Evin Lewis both fell after getting into double figures but Johnson Charles managed to hit his way out of trouble. The middle order yet again disappointed but Rovman Powell did manage to get in a few big hits towards the fag end of the innings which ensured that the Windies got a defendable total on board. Blessing Muzarabani and Sikandar Raza starred with the ball for Zimbabwe with Sean Williams bowling decently as well. In reply, Zimbabwe had a batting collapse after getting off to a quick start with the likes of Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder taking full advantage of the opportunity handed to them. In the end, it was a comfortable enough victory for West Indies.
    West Indies seem to have turned on a new leaf with this victory and the manner in which they have got over the line will give them a lot of self-belief. They managed to get over 150 runs and then came the hostility from Alzarri Joseph who was simply sensational. The likes of Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein and Obed McCoy too bowled well in the middle phase and kept on picking up wickets. Joseph finished with 4 wickets and Holder ended with 3 as he got the final wicket as well. West Indies have the points on the board and will go into their final group game with momentum on their side.
    Zimbabwe will be mightily disappointed with the way they lost the game. They couldn't finish on a high with the ball but with the bat, they started off in fine fashion with both Wesley Madhevere and Regis Chakabva getting out of the box quickly. Chakabva did fall soon but Madhevere kept on attacking. Once Tony Munyonga fell, Zimbabwe completely lost the plot and gave away 4 wickets for just 17 runs and that put them under a lot of pressure. There was a late onslaught from Luke Jongwe that breathed life back into the chase but it wasn't enough.
    What a turnaround it has been for West Indies as they have turned despair into victory. With the Windies winning this game, Group B is set for a thrilling final day with all four teams sitting on 2 points each.

The batters scamper through as Pooran gets to the ball quickly with a dive and even has a shy at the striker's end. No harm done though as Pooran misses the stumps.

Jason Holder serves it a tad short and outside off and at a gentle pace too. Madhevere hangs back and just throws his hands at it, looking to go over the in-field. His feet don't move and there's not much elevation on the shot. Evin Lewis at backward point stretches to his left and grabs it with both hands. Holder picks up a wicket in his first over and the set batter for Zimbabwe departs as well.
    6.4
    Jason Holder to Sikandar Raza, 1 run, Just a fraction short and over middle and leg. Raza tucks it 'round the corner for a single.

    Obed McCoy to Sean Williams, out, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Sean Williams chases a wide one and pays the ultimate price! Obed McCoy serves it seam up, on a length and pushes it outside off. Williams stands his ground and just reaches out looking to cut it away. The ball takes the outside edge and it is a simple catch for Nicholas Pooran behind the sticks.

    Alzarri Joseph to Regis Chakabva, out, OUT! DRAGS IT ON! Superb bowling from Alzarri Joseph. He bowled a sharp bouncer and follows it up with a length delivery around off at 146 kph.

All he manages is a big inside edge and the ball deflects onto the stumps.
    2.1
    Alzarri Joseph to Regis Chakabva, no run, A sharp short delivery on middle but the speed gun reads only 130 kph. Regis Chakabva is keen on the pull shot but flies over his bat.

    1.1
    Akeal Hosein to Wesley Madhevere, no ball, FOUR, FOUR! Zimbabwe have come out with intent and West Indies are helping them with some shoddy bowling. Too full in length, around off, Wesley Madhevere drills his drive down through mid off for a boundary. It's a no ball as West Indies had one extra fielder behind square on the leg side. Free Hit coming up.
    It will be spin from the other end as Akeal Hosein has been handed the ball.

    COMMENTARY

    End of over

    WI153/7 (20.0 Ovs)

    We are back for the chase! The umpires are out in the middle as the West Indian players can be seen in a huddle. Skipper Regis Chakabva and Wesley Madhevere are the openers for Zimbabwe. Kyle Mayers will get proceedings underway with the ball for West Indies.
    ... The Run Chase ...
    West Indies need wickets with the new ball to defend this total and stay alive in this edition's ICC Men's T20 World Cup. While Zimbabwe need to bat with intent, they will require their top order to step up this evening. Should be a riveting chase. Stay tuned...
    The Zimbabwean bowlers were unable to use the new ball to their advantage. However, once the ball got old, the spinners came into play and that triggered a mini-collapse. Sikandar Raza was Zimbabwe’s most effective bowler accounting for 3 wickets while the rest of the bowlers also put in a decent effort. 
    Opting to bat first, the West Indian openers got their side off to a decent start. Johnson Charles held the innings together for them. At 97-3, when West Indies were starting to slow down and needed him to stay there in the middle, a mix-up between him and Powell resulted in his untimely departure. West Indies kept losing wickets at regular intervals from there and as a result, couldn’t really recover from that collapse. The stand between Rovman Powell and Akeal Hosein though helped them to a total with which they can at least fight.
    Right then, a couple of lusty blows in the final over and West Indies have managed to post a target above 150. Having chosen to bat first, Pooran will be somewhat disappointed with his side’s effort with the bat. Zimbabwe, on the flip side, will certainly be happy with the fightback from their bowlers as at one stage, West Indies were in a dominant position.
    19.6
    Blessing Muzarabani to Odean Smith, 1 run, Excellent delivery to end by Blessing Muzarabani. The giant bowler nails the yorker on the leg stump line, Odean Smith just about manages to jam it out on the off side and they scamper through for one. West Indies finish with 153/7 on the board.
    19.5
    Blessing Muzarabani to Odean Smith, leg byes, 2 runs, TWO LEG BYES! Slower one, on a fuller length and angling into the pads. Odean Smith looks to back away and flick it leg side but misses. The ball hits the pads and goes past the stumps and past the diving keeper towards third man. The fielder in the deep picks it up as the batters come back for two runs.
    Odean Smith arrives with two legal balls left.
    19.4
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, out, OUT! TAKEN! The change of length has worked for Blessing Muzarabani and he gets his revenge on Rovman Powell, who has done the damage though. This is pitched up around the off stump and Powell yet again looks to whack it across the line. Powell loses his shape and ends up slicing it high and towards the extra cover region. Richard Ngarava over there moves to his left and keeps his eyes on the ball before pouching it safely. Powell departs after a few lusty blows and Muzarabani has his second wicket.
    19.3
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, SIX, SIX! OUTTA HERE! Another short ball by Blessing Muzarabani and Rovman Powell is just waiting for it. Powell stands tall and just smokes it a long way over the mid-wicket fence. That hit went a massive 104 meters, staggering!
    19.3
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, wide, 1 run, WIDE! An attempted yorker at the toes but it is spilled down the leg side. Wided.
    19.2
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, no run, Swing and a miss! Fuller and close to the off stump. Rovman Powell hangs deep and has a wild swing across the line but loses his shape and fails to make any sort of connection with the ball.
    19.1
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, SIX, SIX! Smashed away! Short ball, over middle but it doesn't rise high enough. Rovman Powell muscles it flat over the square leg fence for a maximum. Good start to the over for the Windies.
    18.6
    Richard Ngarava to Akeal Hosein, 2 runs, Excellent running! Full and straight, Akeal Hosein drills it straight back past the bowler. The fielder from long on cuts it out as the batters come back for the second run.
    18.5
    Richard Ngarava to Rovman Powell, 1 run, This is in the blockhole, around off and angling away. Powell tries to get under it but only manages to hit it to wide long on for a run.
    18.4
    Richard Ngarava to Rovman Powell, 2 runs, A slight fumble and they get two. A low full toss, around off, Rovman Powell drags it towards wide long on and a slight misfield by the fielder over there allows the batters to come back for two.
    18.3
    Richard Ngarava to Akeal Hosein, 1 run, Lucky! Richard Ngarava attempts the yorker but ends up serving a high full toss on off stump. Akeal Hosein backs away and only manages to get it off the inner half of the bat towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
    18.2
    Richard Ngarava to Akeal Hosein, FOUR, FOUR! Up and over! Slower one, on a hard length and around off. Hosein picks it up and thumps it over mid off to pick up a much-needed boundary for his side.
    18.1
    Richard Ngarava to Akeal Hosein, no run, Good aggression from Richard Ngarava. This is a bumper, around off and rises up high as well. Hosein looks to leap and cut it away but misses.
    Richard Ngarava (2-0-10-0) returns.
    17.6
    Blessing Muzarabani to Akeal Hosein, 1 run, Full and outside off, Akeal Hosein looks to go over mid-wicket but miscues it. The ball takes the inside edge and deflects off the pads towards point for a run.
    17.5
    Blessing Muzarabani to Akeal Hosein, no run, Back of a length, over middle and Hosein just blocks it out.
    17.4
    Blessing Muzarabani to Akeal Hosein, 2 runs, Fuller and on middle, Akeal Hosein drills it back past the bowler for a couple of runs.
    17.3
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, 1 run, DROPPED! A difficult chance for Luke Jongwe and Rovman Powell escapes. Banged in short again by Blessing Muzarabani and at a good height as well. This is around off and Rovman Powell looks to take it on as he attempts the cross-batted shot. Powell gets hurried on and the ball comes off the splice of the bat and goes over the cover region. Jongwe tries to circle back and puts in the dive but the ball eludes him. A single is taken.
    17.2
    Blessing Muzarabani to Akeal Hosein, 1 run, On a hard length and angling across the left-hander. Hosein swings at it again and gets an outside edge down to third man for a run.
    17.1
    Blessing Muzarabani to Akeal Hosein, no run, Nicely bowled! Blessing Muzarabani goes full and wide and opts for the slower one. Akeal Hosein hangs deep in his crease, trying to whack it across the line but is completely undone by the lack of pace.
    17.1
    Blessing Muzarabani to Rovman Powell, no ball, 1 run, NO BALL! This is banged in short and outside off, Powell fetches it and swats it towards wide long on for a single. Blessing Muzarabani has overstepped and it will be a Free Hit for West Indies.
    Blessing Muzarabani is back into the attack. 1 for 17 in his 2 overs so far.
    16.6
    Tendai Chatara to Akeal Hosein, 2 runs, Back of a length outside off, Akeal Hosein slogs it to long on. The fielder there doesn't collect it cleanly and the batsmen come back for a couple of runs.
    16.5
    Tendai Chatara to Rovman Powell, 1 run, Short on off, Rovman Powell swivels and pulls it to deep square leg for a run.
    16.4
    Tendai Chatara to Akeal Hosein, 1 run, Full outside off, Akeal Hosein drills it down the ground to long on for a single.
    16.3
    Tendai Chatara to Rovman Powell, leg byes, 1 run, Appeal for an lbw, not given and it has been reviewed by Zimbabwe! A length ball, angling in from around middle. Rovman Powell gets down on one knee as he looks to work it away behind square on the leg side. Powell seems to have missed it and the ball hits the top of the pad before rolling away onto the leg side. They scamper through for a run as Tendai Chatara appeals for an lbw. The umpire turns it down but Regis Chakabva opts for the review. No spike on the UltraEdge and the Ball Tracking shows that it is just flicking the leg stump and the on-field decision of NOT OUT remains. Just the leg bye then.
    16.2
    Tendai Chatara to Akeal Hosein, 1 run, Good length outside off, Akeal Hosein taps it to backward point and sets off for a quick single.

    15.4
    Ryan Burl to Akeal Hosein, FOUR, FOUR! CRUNCHED! A hit-me delivery by Burl, short and wide outside off, Akeal Hosein fetches it from outside off and pulls it between deep mid-wicket and long on for a much-needed boundary.
    Tendai Chatara comes back into the attack. 0 for 16 in his two overs so far.
    15.3
    Ryan Burl to Rovman Powell, 1 run, Flatter outside off, Rovman Powell gets forward and taps it on the off side for one more.
    15.2

    Ryan Burl (2-0-20-0) is back on.

    13.6
    Sikandar Raza to Jason Holder, out, OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Misery continues for West Indies! Sikandar Raza is having a ball in his career, be it with the bat or ball. What a superstar! Flighted delivery, full and on middle, Holder gets forward with his giant stride and tries to flick. He fails to close the face in time and the leading edge sends the ball lobbing to the right of the bowler. Sikandar Raza takes an easy catch and sends West Indies further on the back foot. He finishes his spell, 4-0-19-3.
    13.5
    Sikandar Raza to Jason Holder, 2 runs, Flighted and full, outside off, Holder drives it towards point where the fielder dives but fails to make a clean stop. They get another two runs. 100 up!
    13.4
    Sikandar Raza to Jason Holder, 2 runs, Plays late at it! A touch short and around off, Holder goes back and runs it down wide of short third man. They collect two runs.
    Jason Holder walks in next.
    13.3
    Sikandar Raza to Shamarh Brooks, out, OUT! LBW! Sikandar Raza bowls this one quicker and flatter, darting it in on middle. Shamarh Brooks gets pushed onto the back foot as he tries to keep it out but misses and gets pinged on the pads. Another shout for LBW and this time it is given. Shamarh Brooks has immediately reviewed it though. There is no spike on the UltraEdge and the Ball Tracking comes up with three reds. The on-field decision stands and West Indies are in a spot of bother here as Raza picks up his second wicket.
    13.2
    Sikandar Raza to Shamarh Brooks, no run, Half an appeal for LBW but it is turned down. Shorter and around leg stump, Brooks looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the pads. Too high.
    13.1
    Sikandar Raza to Shamarh Brooks, no run, On a length and drifting onto the pads. Shamarh Brooks just tucks it away towards short fine leg.
    Shamarh Brooks is the new man in.
    12.6
    Sean Williams to Rovman Powell, out, OUT! RUN OUT! Calamity for West Indies, they lose their set batter in Johnson Charles. Rovman Powell stares at his partner who returns disappointed. Coming to the delivery, it's short and wide outside off, Rovman Powell rocks back and cuts it towards point. He takes a few steps forward, and Johnson Charles comes speeding down the track. Powell stops and seeing that Charles also tries to put the brakes. To his bad luck though, he slips. Meanwhile, Tony Munyonga has thrown the ball to the bowler who takes the bails off at his end. Things going from bad to worse for the two-time champions.
    12.5
    Sean Williams to Johnson Charles, 1 run, A bit of an inswinger, very full and on off, Charles eases it down to long on for a single.
    12.5
    Sean Williams to Rovman Powell, no ball, 1 run, No ball! Flatter and on off, tapped down to cover-point for a run. The bowler has overstepped, and Free Hit is coming.

    12.3
    Sean Williams to Rovman Powell, no run, Fuller and around leg, Powell tries to flick but misses. He is hit on the left boot.
    Rovman Powell is in at number 5.
    12.2
    Sean Williams to Nicholas Pooran, out, OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Pooran is down and out, literally. Smart bowling from Williams. He gives his delivery no air, bowls it with the seam up as he arrows it in around middle. Pooran, with a predetermined charge, hurries down the track to flick it on the leg side but fails to close the face of his bat in time. The West Indian skipper falls in the process and the ball lobs back to the bowler. Williams accepts a simple catch gleefully and West Indies are in deep trouble now.
    12.1
    Sean Williams to Johnson Charles, 1 run, Fires it in, flat and around off, arm ball, Charles slaps it through cover-point for a single.
    11.6
    Sikandar Raza to Johnson Charles, 1 run, A touch flat and on middle, Charles forces it towards long on for the sixth single in this over.
    11.5

    11.4
    Sikandar Raza to Johnson Charles, 1 run, Full again, around middle and leg, Charles nudges it through mid-wicket for one.
    11.3
    Sikandar Raza to Nicholas Pooran, 1 run, Serves it full and outside off, Pooran strokes it through covers for a single.
    11.2

    11.1
    Sikandar Raza to Nicholas Pooran, 1 run, Shortish and on off, Pooran punches it to extra cover and they cross for a hesitant single. The throw to the keeper is wayward and Charles reaches the crease safely.
    10.6
    Sean Williams to Nicholas Pooran, 1 run, Flatter and a bit shorter on middle, Nicholas bends his back knee and pulls it to deep mid-wicket for one.
    10.5

    10.1
    Sean Williams to Nicholas Pooran, 1 run, Fires it flat and on middle, it's worked through mid-wicket for a single.
    9.6
    Sikandar Raza to Nicholas Pooran, 1 run, Angles into Pooran who works it to point and gets off the mark.
    Drinks break. Just when the last partnership started to look dangerous, Zimbabwe struck to send Evin Lewis back. It has been good going from both teams. West Indies started cautiously before pulling the trigger but then Zimbabwe also slowed things down after the Powerplay. The Caribbean team regained some momentum after a 16-run 9th over but losing Lewis means that they will have to build again. Nicholas Pooran is the next batter. 
    9.5
    Sikandar Raza to Evin Lewis, out, OUT! CAUGHT! A real long hop from Sikandar Raza but it brings him a wicket! This is dragged down around middle stump and begging to be hit. Evin Lewis stays deep in his crease and looks to pull it over the long on fence. Lewis gets no timing whatsoever on it and ends up just lofting it down to long on. Milton Shumba over there takes a simple catch and Lewis departs after a sedate knock. Zimbabwe get the breakthrough that they desperately needed.
    9.4
    Sikandar Raza to Johnson Charles, 1 run, Flatter on the off stump, Johnson Charles drives it to long off and takes a single.
    9.3
    Sikandar Raza to Evin Lewis, 1 run, Full toss on the middle stump line, Evin Lewis hits it back on the bounce to Sikandar Raza who doesn't stop it cleanly and concedes a single.

    Pitch report - The surface is still a good one for batting. The slower deliveries were gripping well in the game played prior to this one and the bowlers will have to use all their expertise to succeed here. Dew could be a problem later on.
    Regis Chakabva, the stand-in skipper of Zimbabwe, says that it looks like a good wicket and is not too disappointed to bowl first. Informs that Craig Ervine is unwell and will miss this game with Tony Munyonga replacing him. Reckons that they need to bowl well and restrict West Indies to a smaller total.
    Nicholas Pooran, the captain of West Indies, says that they will bat first in this must-win game, put runs on the board and put pressure on Zimbabwe. Adds that it was a bad performance last time but it's a new day and a new opportunity for them. Mentions that his batters need to step up. Informs that there is one forced change, Johnson Charles comes in, replacing Brandon King.
    Zimbabwe (Playing XI) - Regis Chakabva (C/WK), Tony Munyonga (In for Craig Ervine), Wesley Madhevere, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava, and Blessing Muzarabani.

    TOSS - Up goes the coin and it lands in favour of the West Indies and they have elected to BAT first.

    That's it then from this game and what a fascinating day of cricket we had!

Sri Lanka will take on the Netherlands in the first game of the day at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT) followed by a clash between Namibia and the United Arab Emirates at 1.30 pm IST (8 am GMT). You can join us in advance for the build-up of both games. Cheers!
    Nicholas Pooran, the captain of West Indies, says that they had a chat regarding their batting as enough was enough and the batters have to take more responsibility. He sounds happy with the way Rovman Powell and Akeal Hosein formed a partnership. On his plan to bowl Kyle Mayers up front, Pooran replies that he is the one who swings the ball but he failed to get it right. Pooran counts on the experience of Jason Holder and heaps his praise on Alzarri Joseph who has been in exceptional form since the beginning of 2022. Pooran is disappointed with his personal form and says that he is working hard. Hopes to find his form in the next game.
    Regis Chakabva, the stand-in captain of Zimbabwe, says that his bowlers stuck to the plans and hit the right areas, especially the spinners. Further says that they tried to rush through the overs and praises his bowlers for pulling things back. Mentions that they were happy to restrict West Indies to 150-odd runs but credits Joseph for the way he bowled. Shares that the pitch played very well and the conditions remained the same throughout. Tells that they are still confident and will look to bounce back.

Shares that he is working on his lengths and it depends on the batters. Mentions that the team performed brilliantly.
    The Presentation ceremony...
    Earlier in the game, Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bat first and the top order did get off to a decent start. Kyle Mayers and Evin Lewis both fell after getting into double figures but Johnson Charles managed to hit his way out of trouble. The middle order yet again disappointed but Rovman Powell did manage to get in a few big hits towards the fag end of the innings which ensured that the Windies got a defendable total on board. Blessing Muzarabani and Sikandar Raza starred with the ball for Zimbabwe with Sean Williams bowling decently as well. In reply, Zimbabwe had a batting collapse after getting off to a quick start with the likes of Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder taking full advantage of the opportunity handed to them. In the end, it was a comfortable enough victory for West Indies.
    West Indies seem to have turned on a new leaf with this victory and the manner in which they have got over the line will give them a lot of self-belief. They managed to get over 150 runs and then came the hostility from Alzarri Joseph who was simply sensational. The likes of Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein and Obed McCoy too bowled well in the middle phase and kept on picking up wickets. Joseph finished with 4 wickets and Holder ended with 3 as he got the final wicket as well. West Indies have the points on the board and will go into their final group game with momentum on their side.
    Zimbabwe will be mightily disappointed with the way they lost the game. They couldn't finish on a high with the ball but with the bat, they started off in fine fashion with both Wesley Madhevere and Regis Chakabva getting out of the box quickly. Chakabva did fall soon but Madhevere kept on attacking. Once Tony Munyonga fell, Zimbabwe completely lost the plot and gave away 4 wickets for just 17 runs and that put them under a lot of pressure. There was a late onslaught from Luke Jongwe that breathed life back into the chase but it wasn't enough.
    What a turnaround it has been for West Indies as they have turned despair into victory. With the Windies winning this game, Group B is set for a thrilling final day with all four teams sitting on 2 points each.

    11.3
    Obed McCoy to Ryan Burl, leg byes, 1 run, Another slower one, full and dipping in around leg, Burl tries to flick but misses. It goes off his pads to backward point and they cross for a leg bye. A direct hit at the striker's end would have been curtains for Luke Jongwe. 
    11.2
    Obed McCoy to Ryan Burl, no run, Slower bouncer at 111 kph, completely deceiving the batter, Burl is way too early as he ducks.
    11.1
    Obed McCoy to Luke Jongwe, 1 run, Short in length and outside off, Luke Jongwe cuts it from the back foot to deep point for a single.
    Obed McCoy (2-0-13-1) is back on and at the moment, West Indies are a couple of overs behind in the over-rate and have to get on with the game quickly now.

    Luke Jongwe is the new man in.
    10.4
    Akeal Hosein to Milton Shumba, out, OUT! Shumba holes out! Akeal strikes and closes his eyes to thank the Almighty. Quicker through the air again, a touch full and on middle, skidding away, Milton Shumba goes down on one knee to smoke it across the line but gets more height than distance behind his shot. It flies behind backward square leg and Shamarh Brooks makes no mistake in the deep. Zimbabwe are in desperate need of a partnership to take this chase deep.

    Akeal Hosein to Ryan Burl, 1 run, Flatter and on middle, Burl helps it towards mid-wicket for a single.
    Drinks break. It's been an entertaining second half of the game where every ball was an event. Zimbabwe started strongly but West Indies wasted no time in bouncing back. With half the side back in the hut, the Men in Red find themselves on the back foot. Their hopes are pinned on the current partnership. 76 needed off 60 balls, it's not an impossible task for the chasing team so West Indies would also like to close the game quickly. Akeal Hosein is back into the attack.
    9.6
    Odean Smith to Ryan Burl, 1 run, Short with pace at the body, Ryan Burl is late on the pull and can only manage a single to deep mid-wicket.
    9.5
    Odean Smith to Ryan Burl, FOUR, FOUR! Full on off, Ryan Burl slogs across the line between mid on and deep mid-wicket to collect a boundary. A timely boundary for Zimbabwe and Ryan Burl.

    8.3
    Jason Holder to Milton Shumba, 1 run, Excellent work from Nicholas Pooran. A fraction shorter and over middle and leg, Shumba looks to pull but the ball goes off the thigh pad and towards the left of the keeper. The batters scamper through as Pooran gets to the ball quickly with a dive and even has a shy at the striker's end. No harm done though as Pooran misses the stumps. It's given as a run, so maybe there was some inside edge.
    8.2
    Jason Holder to Milton Shumba, no run, Swing and a miss! Good length, angling it across the left-hander. Milton Shumba walks towards the ball and has a swipe across the line but misses.

    Ryan Burl is in next.
    7.2
    Odean Smith to Sikandar Raza, out, OUT! CAUGHT! A catastrophe for Zimbabwe as Sikandar Raza throws his wicket away. Odean Smith hits the length hard and bowls it outside off. Raza looks to replicate the big shot from the previous delivery and tries to thump it over extra cover. He though fails to keep his shape and ends up toe-ending it over the extra cover region. Rovman Powell, at mid off, strides across to his left and takes the catch comfortably. A huge moment in the game as Smith gets rid of Raza and Zimbabwe are fading away quickly here.
    7.1
    Odean Smith to Sikandar Raza, SIX, SIX! SMASHED! Banged in short outside off, Sikandar Raza sets himself and pulls it over deep mid-wicket for a massive six. A much needed maximum for Zimbabwe.
    Odean Smith is ready to bowl the next over.
    6.6
    Jason Holder to Milton Shumba, no run, Back of a length and around off, Milton Shumba just dabs it down towards backward point.
    Milton Shumba is the new batter.
    6.5
    Jason Holder to Wesley Madhevere, out, OUT! TAKEN! A loose shot from Wesley Madhevere and the West Indies players are up in joy. Jason Holder serves it a tad short and outside off and at a gentle pace too. Madhevere hangs back and just throws his hands at it, looking to go over the in-field. His feet don't move and there's not much elevation on the shot. Evin Lewis at backward point stretches to his left and grabs it with both hands. Holder picks up a wicket in his first over and the set batter for Zimbabwe departs as well.
    6.4
    Jason Holder to Sikandar Raza, 1 run, Just a fraction short and over middle and leg. Raza tucks it 'round the corner for a single.
    6.3

    6.2

    Sikandar Raza, the man in sizzling form, walks in next. 
    5.1
    Obed McCoy to Sean Williams, out, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Sean Williams chases a wide one and pays the ultimate price! Obed McCoy serves it seam up, on a length and pushes it outside off. Williams stands his ground and just reaches out looking to cut it away. The ball takes the outside edge and it is a simple catch for Nicholas Pooran behind the sticks. Williams departs cheaply and West Indies are now in the ascendancy.
    4.6
    Alzarri Joseph to Sean Williams, 1 run, Digs it in short, on middle, Williams goes back and turns it through square leg for a run. End of an eventful over, 12 runs and a wicket from it.

    4.5

It's a rip-roaring delivery, a near-yorker on middle at 145 kph, Tony Munyonga stays leg-side of this delivery, trying to drive but is beaten for extra pace. He is late in bringing his bat down and the stumps behind are obliterated. Runs are coming for Zimbabwe but they are losing wickets at the same time. 107 needed off 91 balls.
    4.4
    Alzarri Joseph to Wesley Madhevere, 1 run, Short and wide outside off, 148 kph, Wesley Madhevere chops it down to third man for a single.

Alzarri Joseph digs it in short again, around off at 130 clicks, Wesley Madhevere takes his eyes off the ball as he hooks reactively. The ball flies off the top edge and has enough wings to clear the fence at backward square leg.
    4.2
    Alzarri Joseph to Wesley Madhevere, no run, Misses this time! Short and on off, 140 kph, Wesley again tries to pull but misses.
    4.1
    Alzarri Joseph to Wesley Madhevere, FOUR, FOUR! Put away! Short in length around off, at 138 kph, Wesley Madhevere swivels on the back foot and pulls it with authority through the gap between mid on and mid-wicket for a boundary.

    Obed McCoy to Wesley Madhevere, FOUR, FOUR! Misfield and a boundary results. Short in length and outside off, Wesley Madhevere slaps through the line and it goes through the legs of Johnson Charles at cover-point for a boundary. Very poor.

    3.1
    Obed McCoy to Tony Munyonga, 1 run, Slightly short and around off, Tony Munyonga pushes it from the back foot to covers and picks up a single.

    Tony Munyonga is the new man in.
    2.2
    Alzarri Joseph to Regis Chakabva, out, OUT! DRAGS IT ON! Superb bowling from Alzarri Joseph. He bowled a sharp bouncer and follows it up with a length delivery around off at 146 kph. As an after-effect of the last delivery, Regis Chakabva's front foot goes nowhere as he remains glued to the back foot and tries to drive it through the line. All he manages is a big inside edge and the ball deflects onto the stumps.
    2.1
    Alzarri Joseph to Regis Chakabva, no run, A sharp short delivery on middle but the speed gun reads only 130 kph. Regis Chakabva is keen on the pull shot but flies over his bat.

    1.6

    1.1
    Akeal Hosein to Wesley Madhevere, no ball, FOUR, FOUR! Zimbabwe have come out with intent and West Indies are helping them with some shoddy bowling. Too full in length, around off, Wesley Madhevere drills his drive down through mid off for a boundary. It's a no ball as West Indies had one extra fielder behind square on the leg side. Free Hit coming up.
    It will be spin from the other end as Akeal Hosein has been handed the ball.
    0.6
    Kyle Mayers to Regis Chakabva, FOUR, FOUR! Bang! 18 from the first over. The keeper drops back and Mayers bowls it short and wide outside off, Regis Chakabva camps back and smacks it through cover-point for a boundary.

Another inswinging delivery from Mayers but it's down the leg side. The batter fails to flick and Pooran, standing up to the stumps, has no chance to cut it off. The ball scoots away to fine leg.
    0.3
    Kyle Mayers to Regis Chakabva, no run, Shout for an lbw, nothing from the umpire. The keeper comes up to the stumps and Mayers bowls a full ball on off, Chakabva fails to flick this time and wears it on his pads. The appeal is not entertained and Nicholas Pooran takes a late call to refer the decision. The UltraEdge detects a big spike. West Indies lose one review.
    0.2
    Kyle Mayers to Regis Chakabva, FOUR, FOUR! Struck well! Kyle Mayers attempts for an inswinging yorker but ends up serving a low full toss on middle and leg, Regis Chakabva flicks and sends it racing away through backward square leg for a boundary.
