Zimbabwe skipper Craig Ervine said on Tuesday that a shock semi-final spot at the Twenty20 World Cup would be the "icing on the cake".

Zimbabwe play the Netherlands in Adelaide on Wednesday in their penultimate Super 12 game and must win in their pursuit of a place in the last four.

The African team, ranked 11th in the world, came through the first round in Australia and then saw their first match in Group 2 washed out against South Africa.

They then stunned Pakistan, before running Bangladesh close in a loss on Sunday.

South Africa top Group 2 with five points, one ahead of India and Bangladesh. Zimbabwe are fourth, with only the top two going into the semi-finals.

"So many positives that the guys will take from this tournament regardless of the next two results," Ervine told reporters.
