Zimbabwe win this Test match by 4 wickets and level the series 1-1

Stuart Carlisle unbeaten on 62 was the back bone of the Zimbabwean innings

Sensational stuff from the hosts, all speculation of an Indian series win outside the subcontinent have evaporated

It has been well fought but truth be told Zimbabwe have done very well. Despite being plagued by injury problems the Zimbabweans have come out on top

The presentation ceremony should follow soon

Andy Blignaut has been named the man of the match for his brisk knock in the first innings and his five wicket haul in the second innings. Well done Andy Blignaut!
