Alzarri Joseph starred as West Indies kept their hopes of progressing in the Men's T20 World Cup alive with a 31-run win over Zimbabwe.

Fast bowler Joseph took 4-16 to help dismiss Zimbabwe for 122 with 10 balls remaining in Hobart.

The Windies had earlier reached 153-7 after a mid-innings collapse saw them lose four wickets for 11 runs.

The result means all four teams in Group B have two points after Ireland beat Scotland earlier on Thursday.

Ireland face West Indies in their final group game on Friday (05:00 BST), before Scotland take on Zimbabwe (09:00).

The top two sides from each group will qualify for the Super 12s, which start on Saturday. The winner of Group A and runner-up from Group B will go into a group including England.
