Highlights
Once again: Australia pose with the 2007 World Cup trophy.
5th match, Ireland vs Zimbabwe at Kingston
Chasing 221, Zimbabwe were aided by a 70-run partnership between Stuart Matsikenyeri (73 not out) and Brendan Taylor (24), and needed 10 runs from 20 balls with four wickets left. But all four fell—two of them run out—leaving the scores tied. Earlier, Jeremy Bray (115) helped Ireland reach 221, becoming the sixth batsman from a non-Test playing team to score a One Day International (ODI) century.
33rd match, Super Eights: England vs Sri Lanka at North Sound
Shahid Mahmood (4 for 50) and Andrew Flintoff (3 for 35) restricted Sri Lanka to 235 in 50 overs after England opted to field first. England struggled initially, being reduced to 133 for six wickets before Paul Nixon (42) and Ravi Bopara (52) brought them close to the target with 11 needed off the last over from Dilhara Fernando. With three runs remaining, Bopara was bowled in the last ball to give Sri Lanka a two-run victory.

Chasing 301, England were 189 for six and needed 112 more from 14 overs. A partnership of 80 runs from 63 balls between Kevin Pietersen (100) and Paul Nixon brought them back in the match.
