Zimbabwe game 'now big' for Ireland

Wednesday, 04 March 2015 - 8:24

Ireland's game with Zimbabwe on Saturday is "now very big" after their World Cup thrashing by South Africa, says captain William Porterfield.

Hashim Amla's 159 and Faf du Plessis's 109 helped South Africa to 411-4 with the Irish all-out for 210 in Canberra on Tuesday.

However, a win in Hobart on Saturday will keep Ireland's hopes of a quarter-final spot very much alive.
