Zimbabwe win by 30 runs. Zimbabwe are a happy unit, their last win was in November of 2003 against a major opposition. It was a lacklustre performance from West Indies, they were never in the game as they chased 275. Zimbabwe's bowlers were in total control throughout the innings. Chibhabha did a wonderful job first with the bat and then with the ball to pick up the Man-of-the-Match.

Thanks for being with us, please join us for the second ODI on December 2. This is Binoy George signing off for now.
