Brendan Taylor quit the international stage after 11 years with a flamboyant 138 in a valedictory innings which almost spurred Zimbabwe to a shock win over India at the Cricket World Cup today.

India won by six wickets to preserve its unbeaten record in Pool B but needed exceptional innings of 110 from Suresh Raina and 85 from Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an unbroken 196-run partnership to sneak home with eight balls remaining.

Taylor had silenced the throbbing drums and whistles of 30 000 Indian fans for more than 2 1/2 hours as he compiled his second consecutive century of this World Cup, the eighth and last of his distinguished international career.
