U-19 World Cup 2022: During the U19 World Cup match between Zimbabwe and Ireland at Queen’s Park Oval, an earthquake was felt.

An earthquake off the coast of Port of Spain had sent mild tremors at the stadium while Zimbabwe was batting against Ireland at the ongoing tournament. It did not impact the play but the commentators did talk about the tremors they experienced during the live broadcast.

Irish spinner Matthew Humphreys was bowling the fifth ball of the sixth over to Brian Bennett and it was then that the front-on camera showed the surroundings shaking furiously.

Ireland defeated Zimbabwe by eight wickets to advance to the Plate Final, where they will take on the United Arab Emirates.


With Jack Dickson and Tim Tector batting masterclasses of 159 runs and Muzamil Sherzad taking five wickets, Ireland beat Zimbabwe by eight wickets to reach the Plate Final.

In Port of Spain, Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bat. But they got off to a sluggish start, with Matthew Welch being run out for a nine-ball duck and skipper Emmanuel Bawa being trapped lbw by Matthew Humphreys for four runs.

Steven Saul (24) and Brian Bennett (37) put up 52 for the third wicket. Before Saul was clean bowled by Humphrey and Bennett fell to Sherzad eight overs later.

In his 35 balls, David Bennett hit three boundaries. But he received little help from the lower order, and Zimbabwe were finally bowled for 166 in 48.4 overs.
Sherzad was Ireland’s best bowler, taking five for 20 for a total of 13 wickets in the tournament.

Zimbabwe got off to a solid start with the bat. As Mcgini Dube caught Nathan McGuire for six runs in the third over.
