STAND-IN skipper Brendan Taylor has called on his teammates to show more intent in their final Pool game against defending champions India on Saturday in order to conclude their ninth World Cup campaign on a high note.

Zimbabwe became the first Test playing nation to get eliminated from quarterfinal contention following their five-run defeat to Ireland last week.

Ahead of their final Pool B game against India in Auckland, Taylor said it was another opportunity to try and get all three departments right, adding that they have beaten India before back home so they have the belief that they can do it.

Taylor, who has amassed 295 runs so far in the tournament, further said that there was a lot to play for, a lot of pride at stake, insisting that they want to try and finish on a high note.

Describing their World Cup campaign as 'disappointing', Taylor conceded that there had been positions against South Africa, West Indies, and Pakistan, where they could have got over the line if they had been smarter as batters.

Taylor said that they had played some excellent cricket for 80 percent of the time they had been here but that 20 percent was why they were not going to progress.
