Commentary

END OF OVER:
5 | 3 Runs | WI: 12/1

Five Test wins in a row for West Indies, Fazeer Mohammed says on TV commentary that it's the first time since 1988 that West Indies have managed to achieve that. Although this run has come against New Zealand, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Easily done in the end. The first innings was well fought, but Sammy changed things for his team from 150-odd for six with that counter-attack. And Shillingford did the job with the ball in the second innings. Zimbabwe were impressive in bursts, but couldn't sustain that for an extended period of time. West Indies go 1-0 up. Abhishek Purohit has it all in his day's report. There will be a presentation ceremony shortly, so we'll get you the details from there in a bit.

Taylor: "It was a tough Test. We let ourselves down on the first day, only getting 200 was disappointing. If we had got 300 it could have been a different game. Not a lot of positives apart from Kyle Jarvis. Mawoyo did bat well but there were a few of us who got starts but didn't carry on. We've got to find a way to combat the spin and their three-pronged pace attack. It would have been nice to have had another seamer, but one of our strike bowlers, Cremer, wasn't at his best. But he'll come back. Considering Jarvis struggled in the one-dayers, I am very pleased for him, it is nice to see him swinging the ball again. We hear it spins a bit more in Dominica, it'll be challenging."

Sammy: "We did exactly what we wanted to do, win our fifth Test in a row, everybody played their part really well. The batting coach Ratford and I have been doing a lot of work, changed my grip a little bit. Ramdin batted well on his birthday, Marlon as well, we looked at the pitch and said anything above a 100 runs as lead would do. I am an attacking batsman by nature, I got a few loose balls and I put it away. Yesterday, it wasn't about survival, but sometimes I might have to restrain myself. Shillingford has been continuing the form he is in the first-class season, Powell took five bat-pad catches. We have a chance to make it six in a row, something that hasn't happened for over 20 years."

Shane Shillingford is Man of the Match:"I played a couple of matches in th first-class season here, and I got wickets here, so I gave it my all. It's always good to come back and play for West Indies. I tried to bowl a consistent line first up and then try to spin as much as possible and try to bowl in good areas. I trust in God, and we'll see what happens in Dominica."

That is all. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. The next Test is on the 20th, so we'll see you then. Take care, goodbye.
