Sluggish West Indies take the series

A dramatic Zimbabwean collapse, triggered by Jerome Taylor's five wickets, and some sloppy fielding from the hosts allowed a depleted yet trigger-happy West Indian line-up to ultimately overhaul a total of 233 and win by five wickets

Zimbabwe have only themselves to blame for the poor batting in the final fifteen overs, where they lost nine wickets . West Indies -aided by half centuries from Morton and Samuels, and a few lusty blows by Bravo towards the end- win the match by a canter.

With the win under the bag West Indies go into the next match as the series winners and Zimbabwe would be playing for pride.

Good night all, and make sure you join us for the fifth and last match of the series on Sunday
