Highlights from Tuesday’s World Cup Pool B match between West Indies and Zimbabwe at Manuka Oval in Canberra:

West Indies beat Zimbabwe by 73 runs (Duckworth/Lewis method).

Zimbabwe innings

1st over – Jerome Taylor takes the new ball for West Indies and concedes six runs, two from extras. ZIM: 6-0

2nd over – Jason Holder concedes a four to Sikandar Raza off his first delivery but three balls later traps Regis Chakabva lbw for two. The umpire initially turns down his appeal but the West Indies skipper demands a review, which shows no obvious inside edge and that the ball would have hit the leg stump. ZIM: 16-1

3rd over – Rain gets heavier again and the umpires call the players off midway through the over. ZIM: 18-1

The innings is resumed with Zimbabwe’s target trimmed to 363 from 48 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

5th over – Taylor strikes on the sixth ball after resumption. Hamilton Masakadza trapped lbw. Calls for a review but it was plumb in front. ZIM: 26-2

6th over – Raza hits back-to-back fours off Holder. ZIM: 34-2

8th over – Raza falls for 26 to Holder, holing out in the deep where Lendl Simmons has plenty of time to get in position and take the catch. ZIM: 46-3

18th over – Miller’s fifth over goes for 10 runs with both batsmen hitting fours. ZIM: 115-3

21st over – Marlon Samuels breaks the partnership in controversial circumstances. An appeal for caught behind is denied but West Indies refer.

30th over – Ervine hits a straight four then a brilliant six to square leg with a flick off the bottom of the bat. Another pulled four behind square gives him 16 off the over. ZIM: 197-5

31st over – Ervine, on 34, is dropped off Miller by Taylor on the boundary. ZIM: 205-5

33rd over – Ervine hooks the ball for four to bring up his sixth halfcentury. ZIM: 224-5

West Indies innings

1st oval – Brilliant opening over from Tinashe Panyangara, who clean bowls Dwayne Smith with his second delivery and comes close to dismissing Chris Gayle lbw with his fourth. Zimbabwe request a review but technology shows the ball going just over the bails. WI: 3-1

3rd over – Marlon Samuels hits the first boundary of the innings, hammering a full, wide delivery from Panyangara to the offside rope for four. WI: 10-1

4th over – Gayle does not quite get hold of the ball but succeeds in hitting Tendai Chatara just over the fielder at mid-on for his first four. WI: 16-1

6th over – Gayle opens up with two clubbed fours but miscues a shot through extra cover on the fifth ball of Chatara’s over which Elton Chigumbura is just unable to reach. WI: 31-1

10th over – Another tight over from Chatara with just one four conceded through the covers from Samuels. West Indies will be pleased to have survived a rocky start to their innings. WI: 43-1
