Sammy, Chanderpaul give Windies series lead

Within 80 balls in to the chase, it was all but over. A penetrative spell from Darren Sammy, in which he took three wickets from his first three overs - later adding one more to his tally - left the Zimbabwean top order reeling in their chase of 246 at Ar

Presentation
Chris Gayle "Definitely a team effort, very happy with the result. 240-250 was a good score. Well done Darren Sammy, he sould have got five wickets, my fault he didn't. But happy for him that he got the Man of the Match. It was a tough call to leave Sulieman out, but in the end Ravi came in and did a decent job. I am sure Zimbabwe will come back hard at us, and we shouldn't get carried away."

Darren Sammy is the Man of the Match. Says he: "My job was to put the ball in the right areas, fortunately I kept picking up wickets. From the first ball I bowled, I saw the ball hold up a bit, and knew where to bowl."

Prosper Utseya "We didn't bat properly. We took too much time to adjust, didn't just bat well. They made use of the conditions well, they bowled in the right areas and with the right fields."

All smiles for West Indies, shake of hands with Zimbabweans. The crowd is happy, comprehensive win for their team. Stay back for the presentation quotes. Garvin says, "Let the party and parade begin in NY!" And in the Caribbean too!
