View dismissal DR Smith b Panyangara 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 81.1 mph, Panyangara is at it again! Gets this one to nip in from just outside off on a length, with Dwayne playing outside of the line of it as it burst through the gate. Panyangara walks a couple of steps before shaking his money maker 0/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c Chigumbura b Masakadza 215 212 147 10 16 146.25
49.6 71.7 mph, and he tries to go for the sixes record with a powerful strike down the ground to this fuller one outside of off. Gayle gets on one knee and ends up slicing this high over point, with Chigu able to come round to take a good low catch. 372/2

  Zimbabwe innings (target: 363 runs from 48 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Simmons b Holder 26 36 20 5 0 130.00
7.6 82.9 mph, looking for quick runs with a ramp over third man, but ends up hitting it squarer to the fielder positioned in the deep in that area. Lendl Simmons is able to get himself settled under it to take it safely. Zimbabwe now three down, and Raza, who looked the most threatening, has to go 46/3
View dismissal RW Chakabva lbw b Holder 2 10 5 0 0 40.00
1.4 82.7 mph, length delivery on middle and off which appears to strike in line. The umpire is not interested, as it looked like there may be an inside-edge on it. Holder is interested though, and wants a review. There doesn't appear to be an obvious deflection, but the only thing now is height, with the replays confirming the ball would go on to hit the leg stump, so a great review in the end by the WI captain. Regis has to go with not too much on the board 11/1
View dismissal H Masakadza lbw b Taylor 5 12 14 0 0 35.71
4.6 88.8 mph, Hamilton looking for the big heave through midwicket as he looks to be late on this one on middle and leg. Looked out initially, but Hamilton wants the review. Nothing on Snicko and replays confirm that this was indeed plumb in front. Not a good review at all as they waste this one. Original decision stands 26/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor c †Ramdin b Samuels 37 61 48 2 1 77.08
20.1 51.8 mph, Brendan, looking to paddle this through fine leg, ends up top-edging a chance to Ramdin, with the WI celebrating. The umpire, though, doesn't appear moved, but Ramdin and Marlon want this reviewed. Brendan didn't seem too perturbed though, and why not since replays show that this indeed went off the forearm, and not glove. But hang on, this has been given out, and I am a bit shocked as there didn't seem to be clear evidence there for this to be given out conclusively.. but the decision has come down. Brendan has to go after his fine 37 126/4
View dismissal SC Williams c Smith b Holder 76 78 61 9 0 124.59
27.5 82.6 mph, banged in from Holder from round the wicket as Williams' stay at the crease comes to an end after he mistimes a pull through midwicket, with the blade turning in his hands. Ends up going up straight to midwicket who is able to take it comfortably. Ends another crucial hand from Williams, and one suspects that with that wicket, the chase may have slipped away out of Zimbabwe's hands.. 177/5
View dismissal CR Ervine b Gayle 52 61 41 7 1 126.82
33.4 you knew it was going to happen as Gayle strikes in his very first over itself. Ervine, looking to fetch this from outside of off, ends up playing all around as the ball turns in sharply to castle his off stump. The danger-man Ervine goes for 52, and Zimbabwe stare down the prospect of an inevitable defeat 226/6
View dismissal S Matsikenyeri lbw b Gayle 19 41 23 2 0 82.60
35.4 Gayle celebrates once more as he rushes this one on middle and off, with the batsman playing all around. With no reviews left, Stuart has to go 239/7
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c Gayle b Taylor 21 33 20 1 1 105.00
40.5 85.9 mph, you just can't keep him out of the action tonight as he now adds his name to the catches column, picking off this aerial chip from Elton at extra-cover, before finishing with a couple of dramatic rolls to get the crowd off their feet. Zimbabwe now nine down as West Indies look to complete the last rites 266/9
View dismissal T Panyangara c †Ramdin b Taylor 4 12 8 0 0 50.00
38.1 85.8 mph, Tinashe unable to drop his wrists in time to this one which rears up on a short of a length outside of off . The ball ends up catching the gloves on the way through to Ramdin, who takes it comfortably at chest height 254/8
View dismissal TL Chatara b Miller 16 25 20 1 0 80.00
44.3 52.8 mph, and Miller sneaks through the gate to wrap up a convincing 73-run victory over Zimbabwe. This one drifted in, with the batsman leaving daylight between bat and pad 289/10
