Team India continued dominating Pool B in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, when they bulldozed the minnows, Ireland, in the previous game. The Blue Shirts kicked off the tournament by defeating Pakistan followed by impressive victories against South Africa, United Arab Emirates and West Indies. They have gathered 10 points from five matches, earned a net run rate of +2.157 and most likely will add another two points after the sixth one. Zimbabwe lost their opener vs. South Africa, triumphed against UAE but surrendered the forthcoming games vs. West Indies, Pakistan and Ireland. They managed two mere points at a net run rate of -0.595, are placed at no.6 in the pool and will try to give a better performance in their last game.
Shikhar Dhawan blasted another hundred of his career, Rohit Sharma was clean bowled for 64 as Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane remained unbeaten at 44 and 33 in the previous match vs. Ireland. Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni can negotiate with any challenge while their strong bowling line-up is guarded by Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and Umesh Yadav.
Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams almost won the match against Ireland by contributing 149 runs partnership for the fifth wicket. The duo smashed 121 and 96 runs whereas none other batsmen reached the twenty runs mark. Hamilton Masakadza, Chamu Chibhabha, Solomon Mire and Craig Ervine must concentrate on their batting for a positive result. Their bowling revolves around Tinashe Panyangara, Tendai Chatara, Tawanda Mupariwa, Sikandar Raza and Sean Willimas.
