West Indies win the match by 9 wickets and the mini-session count 9 - 4

Lunch, Day 1: The mini-session count is tied up, 1-1

A reasonable start from Mawoyo, it's good to see him hitting some form again. - Mykuhl

Stumps, Day 1: West Indies lead the mini-session count 3-2

When Kyle Jarvis was playing for Central Districts he produced a couple of magic spells. This is certainly a good start from him.

Lunch, Day 2: West Indies lead the mini-session count 4-3

Zimbabwe have an opening here. If they can wrap up the tail cheaply they could be back in this match.

Final drinks, Day 2: West Indies lead the mini-session count 6-4

Darren Sammy is an interesting cricketer. Not quite a batsman, not quite a bowler, and yet he's capable of turning a match with either. That was a sensational innings in the context of this match.

Stumps, Day 2: West Indies lead the mini-session count 7-4

Things are suddenly looking very grim for Zimbabwe. They desperately need a big partnership.

End of match, Day 3: West Indies lead the mini-session count 9-4

The big partnership never came. Shane Shillingford has done this to a couple of teams now, he's starting to look a little like West Indies version of Abdul Rehman, generally doesn't look particularly special, but has days where he is almost unplayable. Despite generally being good at playing spin, the Zimbabwe batsmen were all at sea against him here.
