Marlon Samuels penalized for ICC code of conduct breach against Zimbabwe

Marlon Samuels penalized for ICC code of conduct breach against Zimbabwe

The result means the victor of the West Indies versus Scotland match on Wednesday will become the first side to qualify for the World Cup, while Zimbabwe can become the second side to progress to the event proper if they defeat the United Arab Emirates on Thursday.

Earlier it was Brendan Taylor's 10th ODI century that helped Zimbabwe post 289.

Taylor reached his half-century from 65 balls with eight fours, while he completed his 10th career century in his 181st match from 105 balls with 16 fours. We can't worry about them.

In the event Zimbabwe win against UAE, then the hosts would have qualified for the 2019 worldwide cricket showcase to be staged in England and Wales.

"Jason Holder, for the whole game, was outstanding", said Law. Zimbabwe managed just 63 runs from the last ten overs, losing six wickets in the process.

After Brendan Taylor's superb 138 had Zimbabwe to a strong total, West Indies put together a succession of telling partnerships to secure victory despite the hosts threatening yet another dramatic comeback.

Holder, who also claimed the top two wickets, finished with four for 35 while Roach ended up with figures of three for 55.

With the bat, West Indies lost Chris Gayle early but were steadied by Hope and Samuels.

Hope was out just five balls later for 76, to a brilliant catch in the deep by Raza off the left-arm spin of Sean Williams.

Marlon Samuels, who cracked an impressive against Zimbabwe with 80-ball 86 runs in West Indies' successful chase of 290, had caused damage to the "30-yard circle disk with his bat" while walking back to the pavilion after he was dismissed. Kyle Coetzer's Scotland might have taken that if you'd offered it to them at the start of the tournament, it's doubtful that the West Indies are happy to let it come down to a single game however, certainly not if they've been watching how Scotland have gone about their business thus far.

But the encouraging thing for Zimbabwe is that the Windies and Scotland will cancel each other out while they target a win against one of the minnows in this Super Six Qualifier, UAE.

With the crowd a-buzz and sensing yet another comeback win from Zimbabwe, it took cool heads and cautious batting from Rovman Powell (15*) and Ashley Nurse (8*) to see their team over the line in the end. A win over Scotland on Wednesday would guarantee their spot, but Law also suggested that Associate nations such as Scotland are no longer the pushovers they may once have been.

"We've shown signs that we're a very good cricket team and we've got one more chance to show the world that we can do it".
