Barbados (CRICINFO): West Indies 307 (Sammy 73, Ramdin 62, Samuels 51, Jarvis 5-54) and 12 for 1 beat Zimbabwe 211 (Mawoyo 50, Samuels 4-13) and 107 (Ervine 23*, Shillingford 6-49) by nine wickets
Shane Shillingford, on his international comeback, ran through a clueless line-up to take his best Test figures as Zimbabwe batted like the Test irregulars they are. West Indies needed just under two hours on the third morning to end the Zimbabwe second innings, although their win was delayed by the farce of a lunch break taken after three overs of their tiny chase.
There would have been no need for West Indies to bat again, had Craig Ervine not been put down twice after a wicket each had gone down in the day's first two overs. There was nothing in the Kensington Oval pitch or in the West Indies attack to justify Zimbabwe lasting only 41.4 overs. There was bounce and some turn for Shillingford alright, but only one of his six wickets, that of Graeme Cremer, was off a delivery that came close to being called unplayable.
