Commentary

West Indies win this match at last - and are into the Super Eights - with a victory that was inevitable as soon as they Zimbabwe three down really early on. What was surprising was the hard work they made of the victory in the end, Zimbabwe just about making it over 200 and then West Indies taking their time to get to their victory which was, at least, always expected. "It's good to get it over with," says Chris Gayle after the match, who chuckles when asked if he had Herschelle Gibbs's six sixes in mind as he sent the first three balls of one over into orbit.

Thanks for joining us today and do come back tomorrow when Scotland will be taking on South Africa, while Kenya face New Zealand.

Chigumbura to Lara, SIX runs, great way to finish with a beautiful aerial drive over midwicket, these last two shots being a treat for the fans who, with the exception of Gayle, too, have had few moments of pure entertainment

Chigumbura to Lara, FOUR runs, lovely high backlift brought down like an inevitable guillotine with a lovely cover drive

Chigumbura to Lara, no run, straight up there and that's defended with a very straight bat

Chigumbura to Lara, no run, a sliver of width outside off and that's worked straight to the man at cover with one bounce

Chigumbura to Lara, no run, across Lara and he fends it down off the back foot

END OF OVER:

West Indies verging on the win, but the batting hasn't been that brilliant this innings, in truth

Mpofu to Bravo, no run, oh, nearly gets his man there with a prod over the ball
