Zimbabwe And The West Indies Play Out The Most Epic One Dayer Imaginable
This is absolutely ridiculous!
Zimbabwe and the West Indies played out an absolutely epic tie at Bulawayo last night after Zimbabwe took three wickets in the last over.
A Carlos Brathwaite six off the last ball of the 49th over left the Windies needing just four runs from the last over of the match, bowled by Donald Tiripano.
They snuck a single off the first ball of the 50th, but then things fell apart.
Brathwaite holed out trying to go over long on, before Ashley Nurse got run out for diamond duck at the non-strikers end in brutal circumstances.
Two more runs put scores level ahead of the last delivery, but skipper Jason Holder couldn’t get bat on it and the wicketkeeper Peter Moor ran out the non-striker Jonathan Carter as they ran through to set up a remarkable tie.
Watch the highlights of the last over here:
The term epic has never been more apt.
