Discussion surrounding the 30th Match of the World Cup between Ireland and Zimbabwe (Bellerive Oval, Hobart).


International Captain
Could be a decent match, yet again with a "minnow" (tough to use that phrase at the moment). Ireland will pull through for another win.

Ireland to chase IMO. Can run down a big score and do it late if need be with Panyangara still used as a death option.


The Tiger King
will be curtains for Ireland if they lose today and pak beat sa which is highly unlikely. even if pak vs sa gets rained off and Ireland lose here then the last match becomes must win for them to qualify

Assuming Pakistan don't do the impossible and beat SA, I don't think this one's actually likely to prove remotely relevant to Ireland's progression. It's still all going to come down to Pakistan.


I'm so torn.

This might be a high scorer though. Both sides batting will happily destroy the others death bowling. I rate Zimbabwe with the new ball though so the Zimbabwean new ball spell v Dockrell's spell through the middle (plus Mooney is a perfectly fine new ball bowler imo) will decide it.

Jimbo the giant

Ireland probably have the slightly stronger batting overall but I rate Taylor the best on show. Zims have the better bowling. Chatara and Panyangara are good with the new ball and the spinners are pretty even. Williams has been very good just as good as dockrell from what I have seen.

Im going to go with zims on this one.

Still gutted there's no Mike Haysman.Need great commentators too,not just the ones based on their cricketing reputation..


International Regular
Tuned into this game for few minutes at the start and he sure sounded like Nass. Lets just wait till he comes on again. :p


International Regular
Porterfield struggling to time the ball in the middle but more importantly is buying time in the middle. Would do him a world of good for the crucial next two games.


State 12th Man
Poerterfield out after a match losing innings shortly after Joyce is dropped. Zim all over them and should really win this.
