Craig Ervine continued his good form at the ICC World Cup with another half-century on Monday.

Bexhill Cricket Club’s overseas player in 2007 top-scored for Zimbabwe in their seven-wicket defeat to Pakistan with 52 off 82 balls including five fours.

Earlier in the competition, the left-handed Ervine, 25, made 85 from 81 deliveries in Zimbabwe’s victory over Canada. He has been an ever-present in his country’s five matches so far.

Ervine, whose older brother Sean has played for Zimbabwe and Hampshire, was Bexhill’s second highest 1st XI runscorer during his summer at The Polegrove with 433 runs from 16 Sussex League innings at an average of 30.93.
