Cheering on Pakistan

With the police investigation of the Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer’s death continuing, and the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, as well as the team’s three-man selection committee, joining team captain Inzamam-ul-Haq in offering their resignations, Zimbabwe will relish their chances today. Worringly it’s a game that could shatter Ireland’s dream of joining the Super8 in the next round. If Zimbabwe win today Ireland will have to either beat hosts West Indies on Friday.. or hope for a better final run rate to go through. Adds From 2.30pm, over-by-over commentary scorecard here Update Pakistan 349 all out, with a ball to spare. That should put them beyond Zimbabwe’s reach [*fingers crossed* – Ed] More With Zimbabwe on 30-3 rained has stopped play. Meanwhile the Irish Cricket Union has confirmed the sudden death of former President and Chairman, Bob Kerr, 68, at his hotel in Ocho Rios in Jamaica, where he was supporting Ireland at the World Cup.
