West Indies v Zimbabwe, 1st Test, Barbados, 3rd day March 14, 2013

Shillingford's six-for sets up big Windies win

  shares 34

West Indies 307 (Sammy 73, Ramdin 62, Samuels 51, Jarvis 5-54) and 12 for 1 beat Zimbabwe 211 (Mawoyo 50, Samuels 4-13) and 107 (Ervine 23*, Shillingford 6-49) by nine wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Shane Shillingford, on his international comeback, ran through a clueless line-up to take his best Test figures as Zimbabwe batted like the Test irregulars they are. West Indies needed just under two hours on the third morning to end the Zimbabwe second innings, although their win was delayed by the farce of a lunch break taken after three overs of their tiny chase.

There would have been no need for West Indies to bat again, had Craig Ervine not been put down twice after a wicket each had gone down in the day's first two overs. There was nothing in the Kensington Oval pitch or in the West Indies attack to justify Zimbabwe lasting only 41.4 overs. There was bounce and some turn for Shillingford alright, but only one of his six wickets, that of Graeme Cremer, was off a delivery that came close to being called unplayable.

It was Zimbabwe's inability to keep down testing, but pretty regular, deliveries that led to their downfall. But for a side that kept itself out of the Test arena for six years and was playing only its fifth Test since ending the exile in August 2011, ability to survive Test-quality bowling is hard to develop without exposure.

That inability was evident in the number of batsmen, three in each innings, who fell to offspin in the leg trap. Few Test specialist batsmen would have fallen so easily. Brendan Taylor, the Zimbabwe captain, summed it up when he stepped out to Shillingford in the day's first over, suddenly stopped and jabbed a length offbreak to forward short leg. It continued a horror tour for Taylor with scores of 8, 0 & 39 in the ODIs, 0 & 4 in the Twenty20s, 20 & 20 in the three-day tour match, and 26 & 6 in this Test.

A few overs later, Malcolm Waller again exposed another area of weakness against spin. He waited deep in the crease as a Shillingford offbreak spun into his thigh pad, but failed to keep the bat out of the way, and got an inside edge to forward short leg.

The next two wickets were earned by Shillingford. He bowled Regis Chakabva with a flighted straighter one as the batsman pushed forward expecting turn. Cremer got a brute that kicked and straightened from a good length to take the edge to the wicketkeeper. Shillingford was accurate throughout the match, and got considerable lift and, at times, sharp turn.

Zimbabwe's spineless showing with the bat, apart from the first session of the game, hid a few West Indies shortcomings. They were under danger of conceding the first-innings lead on day two, before their captain Darren Sammy bailed them out with a match-turning knock from No. 8. They dropped a few catches, including Ervine twice this morning, once by Chris Gayle off Shillingford at slip and once by Darren Bravo at third slip off Tino Best.

Shannon Gabriel ended the innings with two wickets in three balls, leaving Ervine stranded. Kieran Powell had his second failure of the match as he stabbed a Tendai Chatara lifter to gully. When Chris Gayle scored the winning runs, it was the first time since 1988 that West Indies had won five successive Tests. The opposition back then during a seven-match streak were England and Australia; three of the current five wins have come against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

    the future looks bright for zim . they have a lot of games this season . considering that the last we played new zeland thrashed us. they showed a lot of promise in the first innings. jarvis was sublime and chatara had a good debut. with mpofu, meth and vittori plus the spinners . the bowling attack can take 20 wickets. the batsmen don't usually face bowling of that quality on the domestic scene. the west indies have a very good bowling attack sibanda is a classy batsmen, mawoyo puts a high price on his wicket. masakadza, taylor, ervine , waller and chakabva are all good batsmen . zim can bounce back in the second game to square the series

    What I find depressing is how difficult WI batsmen are finding it to handle the swing of ONE decent medium pacer. What are they going to do when they face Steyn, Morkel, and Philander bowling as a pack? Powell in particular seems very suspect to lbw when the ball is pitched on leg, since he is almost always falling over to the offside. He needs some long sessions facing the bowling machine, with it set on producing serious swing.

    Swingit: I get your drift. That's one of the sad things about our WI cricket. When we were the dominant force in cricket it never mattered where a person was from. I remember a time when the WI team had 5 members from one country (Barbados at one time, Guyana at another). We played at the oval in Trinidad without one Trini in the team and you couldn't tell the difference. The TT crowd supported the team anyway because it was our team, WI team. Now people are arguing for their countryman to get in the team regardless of how he performs? That's when the wheels start coming off the wagon. I remember when the then Combined Islands played Trinidad for the Shell Shield championship. Match was played in Guyana and we were so happy for the Combined Islands winning their first championship. Even the Trinis headed by Deryck Murray didn't seem too upset that they lost. We need to go back to picking on merit and drop the bias act.

    If the selectors are going to drop Best, I also think, Bravo should be dropped. Not because he should be, but because he deserves to be dropped.. Tino usally pick up wickets in bunches, and who know how he would had performed if Bravo had taken that easiest of slip catches in the first innings.. Bravo must be dropped too, for he might be the reason for Tino's pooe performance.. plus his own performance was horrible... Selectors got to put a stop to players dropping catches like that......Drop Best, Drop Bravo also..It would be a very good example for the team..If this was Viv's team he would had been send of the field, and be substituted..SELECTORS start setting PRINCIPLES, they would carry this team a very long way..

    And seriously who would have the gall to compare Nikita Miller's stats to the great Marchall or ANY other top bowlers in domestic cricket in the Windies between 1975 and 1990? Are you Even the weakest of domestic sides would regularly beat the top sides touring the Windies in tour matches. I mean most of the domestic sides in the Caribbean at that time would thrash most international teams in existence today (could beat even current SA team) much less the current domestic teams. Miller first class stats are literally against club teams, Marshall domestic stats were against the top batsmen in the world playing on teams that could on any given day beat any top test side.

    @Rally what are you saying that Shane Shillingford was born in Saint Lucia or is that the big island vs small island mentality that lump all islands not called JA, TnT, Guyana or Bdos in the same boat? Do you know the view these countries had of Viv before he proved them wrong? We talking about Sir Viv here but of course he was from a "small island." What would you do drop Shane for Miller when the next text is in Dominica a spin friendly haven that no one knows better than Shilly? Nikita failed to impress when he had his chance but now the claim is "oh he should not have been in ODIs only test."What about all these calls for Delorn Johnson seems he has impressed many but I never here you call out for him is Delorn's crime that he was not born in JA? I tell you I have this convo with my TnT brethren to many times, so much so thta they now say I musta been born in a small island. Talk about regressive myopic attitudes.

    The DRS system is a joke,it compromises the umpiring and could be dimmed as cheating in some people's eyes, either its taken in its entirety as 100% valid or not at all e.g if someone is given LBW and the ball is shown to be hitting the stumps the player should be given out regardless,otherwise if should be withdrawn.

    Lest anyone forget, Shillingford's action came into question on tour, therefore it will be a challenge for him to dublicate this feat. Before anyone regard him as a top spinner, lets see how he fares against top class players and umpires.Samuel was reported in IPL and also earned the wrath of the Australian players for bowling so fast from just two steps to the wicket

  • POSTED BY delboy on | March 15, 2013, 0:18 GMT

    @Rally_Windies ..cont'd , so are you saying if the selector decided to pick a representative team from T&T or JA, either island can now put out a team to represent any WI best 11; you would consider that decision a country biased one? Isn't getting favourable results and laying the foundation for the future existence of the game the greatest of all the objectives here?

  • POSTED BY delboy on | March 15, 2013, 0:10 GMT

    @Rally_Windies This is why very few of those who take their time to comment here play the game yet alone could handle the responsibility of an INTERNATIONAL selector. IT IS NOT AN EASY JOB! One player does not make a team all the different scenarios have to be considered when bringing in particular players; they have to fit into the team from a personal standpoint and from a strategic standpoint. Miller's performance against the domestic players will need to be viewed against others; perhaps the selectors can give him a runout in warm up games soon to feature INDIA and SRI LANKA or when his franchise win the T20 like Narine's team seem to do every year he will get more international exposure??

  • POSTED BY Warm_Coffee on | March 14, 2013, 23:50 GMT

    Shillingford is an average spinner. Zimbabwe are well known to be weak at playing spin I hope people haven't forgotten what 'mystery' spinner Mendis did to them at the World T20 early on. But Zimbabwe did okay for a team that has been out of action for over a year so credit for them for not repeating the New Zealand tour. They need their coaching staff to be with them again because they were once very good players in their days and some key players like Chigumbura, Price etc need to return to the side again.

    I did not watch this match, however, I was wondering if Shillingford's action has been corrected as it looked diabolical during Australia's last tour of the WI. Like Marlon Samuels during this year's BBL. Nonetheless, Narine showed, in Australia, that a spinner can bowl well with a good action.

  • POSTED BY Erebus26 on | March 14, 2013, 21:41 GMT

    @Rally_Windies - everybody has their favourite who they want to promote. I agree that Miller has been harshly treated at times by the Windies selectors (as have a few other Windies spinners) but I was recalling a discussion that was going on before this match over whether Shilly or Narine should be the Windies first choice finger spinner. Shillingford proved to be the correct choice, and I don't think he should've been set aside for Narine in the first place. In anycase, Shilly didn't do anything wrong did he?

  • POSTED BY Rally_Windies on | March 14, 2013, 21:12 GMT

    Erebus ---- playing Shilly was correct ? so snubbing Miller is correct ?

    Maybe Miller would have taken 9 wickets . --- and Wi would not have had to bat a second time ?

    Really? Shilly is still # 2

    and Nikita Miller is doing better and better every year ...

    soon Miller will have a strike rate of 6 balls and an average of 1 run per wicket ---

    cuz this year he has a strike rate of 20 and an average of 5 runs per wicket.... and he STILL cannot get a test call up .....

    Miller's 1st class bowling average is 10 less than Shilly ...

    10 ---

    Miller's stats are better than ANY . BOWLER IN THE HISTORY OF THE Region --

    NOt Marshall, NOBODY can come near his records and insane stats ----

    To bad he was not born in St. Lucia , that is his biggest crime as a cricketer ....

  • POSTED BY on | March 14, 2013, 20:57 GMT

    Another big pick up by Shillingford. It's only Zimbabwe they say but he got alot of wickets against Australia too so it doesn't matter. Some people need to stop the bias in WI and see when a player is playing well and stop calling for people they like or who from their country. Powell have one bad test and people already beating him down? Wi cricket will never rise again with that attitude.

Despite the win I still fee we should not get carried away and think of keeping Sammy as captain for the long haul. WI board should seriously start thinking about the future of WI cricket and not leave it in the hands of Sammy. He sparkles now and then but is the least consistent of players on any team.

    Nothing is right about Gayle and Powell eh?

    Hmmm, perhaps they don't match your "textbook technique" batting style often sought by coaches, but one thing is for sure. They can both bat, and have proven it on many surfaces against many attacks. There can not be many bowlers in the world who truly enjoy bowling to Chris Gayle. And young Powell has made a promising start to his test career.

    Re: looking forward

    It was a steady showing by the home side, with a large margin of victory as expected. The second test should be no different. I would urge the selectors to select Delorn Johnson though, it is the perfect time for him to be released upon the international scene.

    I Must say as a critic of Zimbabwe selection I think they played the best XI available and was pleased to see Ervine retained from the one day form . Price or Cremer must miss out in the next match to either Williams a batsman who can deliver some tidy overs or Meth an accurate swing bowler with a better batting ability than either Price or Cremer. This will not change much if the top of the order do not deliver. Shillingford was not great, the batting application was poor. The extra batsman for a spinner would reduce the very long tail. One thing ZC have got wrong is leaving G Flower at home!!! these guys need their batting coach right now!!

    I know the pro-Narine camp were surprised that Sunil was left out of the squad, but playing Shillingford proved to be correct. I think everybody caught up last year by Narine's brilliant performances in WI's limited overs matches and the IPL, but test cricket is a different game altogether and Narine struggled against England and Bangladesh. Shillingford was harshly treated after he had one bad game against England at Trent Bridge, and whilst doubts remain on his ability to perform away from the WI (he's untested more than anything) there is nobody better on home pitches imo. Overall this was 'job done' for the Windies but they are a few things to iron out - the top order didn't bat that well (apart from Samuels and even he gave his wicket away) and the fast bowlers bowled too short at times. For Zim, much to work on - they batted poorly under pressure although I thought their bowling (Cremer apart) caught the Windies out at times, with Jarvis being particularly impressive.
