After the game, Zimbabwe captain said, “We are ecstatic. To put up a performance like that first game, it shows that we do belong here. It’s a pity that it has been a long way since we have played a World Cup. (On Raza) He’s been a solid performer for us over the last few months. So excited that he could bring that form here again. Different conditions but that didn’t change his form. He played exceptionally today. We needed to get slightly fuller, we thought the Irish bowled a bit too short.”

While Ireland captain said, “I don’t think I can look back and regret (the toss). We were pretty happy at the halfway stage. It was a good wicket, we expected it to be a good wicket all day. When you get blown away (22/4), you are always up against it. Bitterly disappointing with how we started with the competition but it’s a pretty straightforward shoot-out for us now. (On Little) He’s our best bowler at the moment, he’s our strike bowler, he has experience of playing franchise cricket.”
