Zimbabweans 255 for 8 dec (Masakadza 112, Waller 64) and 209 for 7 (Sibanda 80) drew with Sagicor High Performance Centre 230 (Hope 62, Samuels 55, Cremer 7-79)

The three-day tour match between the Sagicor High Performance Centre (SHPC) and Zimbabweans ended in a draw after both sides failed to wrest a decisive advantage.

SHPC added 17 runs to their overnight score before they were dismissed for 230, 25 runs short of the Zimbabweans' first-innings total. Legspinner Graeme Cremer added two wickets to his five-wicket haul on day two to finish with match figures of 7 for 79.

The SHPC bowlers kept the Zimbabwean batsmen in check, picking up regular wickets. Vusi Sibanda was the only batsman to score a fifty in a line-up that had five of the top six get into double-figures. His 80 came off 108 balls and included 13 fours. Yannick Cariah and Jomel Warrican were the most successful bowlers for SHPC, picking up two wickets each.

Apart from Sibanda, only Hamilton Masakadza and Malcolm Waller had a decent game with the bat for the visitors ahead of the first Test against West Indies which starts from Tuesday.

Graeme Cremer is a good legspinner and bats well too.I like the Zim system as they always keep producing these aggression bowlers i.e. legspinners unlike OZ who don't think any of their leggies are up to par.Give them a go then decide don't prejudge folks.
