Windies vs Zimbabwe - Super Sixes Match 5

Series: WC Qualifiers, 2018
Venue: Harare Sports Club, Harare
Date: 19 March 2018

Windies 290/6 (49 Ovs) RR: 5.92 | Windies won by 4 wkts

commentary

That sets up the WCQ pretty nicely. We have four more Super Six games to come and as many as 5 teams can still aspire to finish amongst the top-two - which will guarantee them a place in the 2019 WC. Actually, we might just end up with a couple of semi-final games as the tournament progresses. Lots of excitement coming up with Afghanistan taking on UAE in a must-win game for Rashid Khan's troops tomorrow. Do join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..

Graeme Cremer - 'We thought 290 was a good score, we were happy with our final score during the break. It was a tough call because spinners have been doing the job for us (reason for not bowling pacers in the middle overs), they batted really well, held the innings together (Hope and Samuels), they deserved the win. There will be some pressure on us in the next game, but we will look to embrace it. Would have been nice to win today, but they played well and there's no shame losing such games.'

Jason Holder - 'I am extremely happy, total team effort. I thought they batted well and had a foundation to launch. Credit should go our boys, we took all our chances, got back into the match and then batted pretty well. This is the second time we have won chasing, we have done well as a team. Brendan (Taylor) played well, but I felt we executed our skills well towards the death overs.'

Marlon Samuels, MoM: It was a special effort from the entire team. We know what was at stake and the belief was always there. We bowled badly in patches but it was a good wicket. Was a bit on the slower side. We knew we had to come big and glad to do so. Shai Hope is one of my favorite batsmen. He's growing as a player and one to look out for the future. I mean, I was going all the way but keeper Taylor took a good catch. I was expecting Shai Hope to bring it home, but nevertheless the team got us home and that's what's important for us.

A calm chase from the men from Caribbean (if you discount those 15-20 minutes of madness). Evin Lewis set the platform for the chase, Shai Hope played the anchor, Marlon Samuels was at his aggressive best and Rovman Powell applied the finishing touches. Zimbabwe were disciplined with the ball, but they rag tag on the field, making those small mistakes which eventaully came back to cost them. First loss for the hosts, but they still stay in the hunt for a place amongst the top two. As for West Indies, they are back on top of the table, having garnered six points.

Cremer to Hetmyer, out Stumped!! 'Ridiculous' says Ian Bishop on air, another batsman goes trying to play the glory shot and suddenly Zimbabwe are back in the hunt. This was tossed up nicely outside off, the loop made Hetmyer go for the big slog sweep, gets beaten by the drift, the momentum made his drag his foot out and it's a quicksilver stumping from Taylor. Is the tide turning Zimbabwe's way? Hetmyer st Brendan Taylor b Cremer 13(7) [6s-1]

Sean Williams to Shai Hope, out Caught by Raza!! Is there a twist in the tale? That's a stunning catch from Raza - 'Can Zimbabwe dare to dream?' - says the commentator on air. The third umpire has been called for, but this looks like a clean catch, the soft signal is OUT and there's nothing that should convince the third umpire to overrule the original call, OUT is the call and the crowd cheer. Coming to the ball, it was pushed through flatter and quicker outside off, Hope went down on his kneels as he played the slog sweep, it went flat and towards deep mid-wicket, Raza came running in, the ball was dying on him, but he got his fingers underneath, made sure it didn't pop out when his elbows hit the ground.
