Ireland clinched a dramatic last-ball win over Zimbabwe in their World Twenty20 opener in Bangladesh.

Zimbabwe were going at almost 10 runs an over before eventually posting 163 for 5 from their 20 overs.

But, after losing two wickets, Stuart Thompson needed to scamper through for a single off the final ball to give his side a three-wicket victory.

It is the second time Ireland have upset a Test nation on St Patrick's Day, having beaten Pakistan at the 2007 World Cup.
