Darren Bravo ensures West Indies ease to 3-0 ODI series success

Darren Bravo: steered West Indies to target of 212

Chamu Chibhabha: top scored for Zimbabwe with 48 not out

West Indies completed a 3-0 one-day series whitewash of Zimbabwe with a five-wicket win in the final game.

Set a target of 212, Darren Bravo hit 72 not out to guide West Indies across the winning line with 22 balls to spare.

Bravo's 103-ball knock contained five fours and built on the good work of opener Kieran Powell, who launched the run chase with 42 off 52 deliveries.

Narsingh Deonarine (21), Dwayne Bravo (25) and Denesh Ramdin (24no) also made useful contributions.

Leg-spinner Tinotenda Mutombodzi, making his international debut, was Zimbabwe's most successful bowler with 2-35 from his 10 overs.


Zimbabwe finished on 211-9 after opting to bat first at the National Cricket Stadium in St George's, Grenada.

Vusi Sibanda (41) and Brendan Taylor (39) both fell after making starts and Chamu Chibhabha was left stranded on 48, the top score of the innings.

Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul finished with figures of 3-40.

Zimbabwe's tour continues with a two-match T20 series in Antigua on March 2 and 3.
