Man of the Match: C. J. Chibhabha.
Zimbabwe achieved their first ODI victory over a Test-playing nation other than Bangladesh
since they beat the same opponents at the same ground in November 2003. Their innings was
anchored by Chibhabha, whose 73 came from 85 balls, and given late impetus by Matsikenyeri,
whose 55 occupied only 40. Chanderpaul, who made his eighth one-day century and faced 138
deliveries in all, put on 118 for the fourth wicket with Morton, but the scoring-rate was kept well
in check by Zimbabwe's bowlers, who included slow left-armer Ray Price, back for his first
international since March 2004. Price and off-spinner Prosper Utseya bowled overs 21-40 off the
reel, conceding only 86 between them, and when Morton was finally out West Indies needed 80
from 28 balls.
