Streak brimming with confidence
Zimbabwe captain Heath Streak said his team were looking forward to playing Pakistan in the final game in group A.

Zimbabwe are now joint third in the group and have an excellent chance of advancing to the Super Six stage after beating minnows Holland by 99 runs on Friday.

Streak said the win against Holland would give them confidence against Pakistan on Tuesday.

He said: "Holland was a very important game for us.

"Our first goal was to win and to try and win it well. We achieved both our goals."

Zimbabwe smashed 301-8 in their 50 overs, thanks to 71 from Andy Flower and some heavy late hitting from Andy Blignaut (58) and Streak (44).

Holland did not give up without a fight and hit their highest score of the World Cup, 202-9, but fell 99 runs short.

Streak said: "We have set ourselves up for Pakistan.

"Hopefully the guys can take a bit of confidence from this match to the Pakistan match.

"The guys are fighting hard and that is good to see."
