That marks the 27 runs win for the West Indies. 14 runs scored by Murphy off the last over.

Zimbabwe were never in the match after losing the first two wickets. Scoring slowed down considerably and they paid the price for that

There was a five ball over in this innings, which made no difference to the final outcome any ways.

Andy Blignaut could have made the difference, but he was unlucky to be run out after being send back by campbell

We will be back with you with all the live action tomorrow at 0700 GMT, India will take on the home team Zimbabwe.
