  1. Post update

    Q1: Northern Ireland 6-5 Zimbabwe

    Zimbabwe with another tip in the defensive D, as Michelle Drayne can't get the ball to Emma Magee.

    There's a single goal in it now..and the noise has ramped up several decibels.

    I know this as the percussion is right next to me.

    Magical atmosphere.

  2. Post update

    Q1: Northern Ireland 6-3 Zimbabwe

    A turnover in the Zimbabwe defence is well received in the crowd and Northern Ireland can't win it back.

    Joice Takaidza sinks another goal and it's tetchy in these opening stages on court two.

  3. Post update

    Q1: Northern Ireland 5-2 Zimbabwe

    The Zimbabwe fans are in fine voice, jeering and hollering every pass from their girls in yellow and green.

    The drums and rattles are getting a right hammering.

    Joice Takaidza scores her second to steady any nerves.

    Caroline O'Hanlon fresh from her 100th cap on Saturday, feeds Noleen Armstrong and the shooter does her job.

  5. Post update

    Q1: Northern Ireland 1-1 Zimbabwe

    Almost a real calamity from the first pass as Zimbabwe WD Claris Kwaramba loses the ball over her head.

  10. Can the Proteas throw shade on the Sunshine Girls?

    Northern Ireland v Zimbabwe (15:25 BST)

    I'd like to put my neck out and say I know my netball, so I'm pretty confident in saying that South Africa's clash with Jamaica is going to be an absolute corker.

    Both sides are yet to be at their very best yet in this tournament, and are due to click in this game.

    These two last faced each other on the Gold Coast in the Commonwealth Games in 2018, with Jamaica winning 57-46.

    The Sunshine Girls are ranked second in the world and the Proteas are fifth.

    No lower ranked team has won a game here in Liverpool yet.

    Can South Africa change that?

  14. Welcome to netball on a Sunday afternoon

    Northern Ireland v Zimbabwe (15:25 BST)

    This one is going to be interesting.

    Zimbabwe have been the surprise package in their debut World Cup.

    They play with flair and unpredictability.

    And their fans are really bringing the noise and colour to the party in the stands, drumming and chanting.

    Northern Ireland could do with a win here to guarantee progress into the next round, but that is only in danger anyway if Sri Lanka beat Australia.

    Which is unlikely.
