HOBART – With another major twist in Pakistan’s world cup group, Ireland beats Zimbabwe by five runs in pool-B 30th Match of cricket world cup 2015, PakistanTribe reported.

Scintillating century of Brendan Taylor (121) and splendid knock of Sean Williams (96) went in vain as Zimbabwe lost the thrilling encounter against Ireland.

The victory will further complicate the final four teams for the next round of the event with India is already in quarter finals. Now Irish team will be directly competing with West Indies and, to some extent, with Pakistan tea.

Bilbirnie was unlucky to miss out on a hundred when he was run out by Zimbabwe’s stand-in skipper Brendan Taylor in the 50th over while attempting a tough second run.

Joyce and Bilbirnie were the star performers with their brilliant individual innings and a 138-run third-wicket partnership, which was brisk when it came to scoring but steady at the same time.
