WI crush Zimbabwe

Johnson Charles and Darren Bravo struck stylish tons as the West Indies easily beat Zimbabwe by 156 runs in the opening game of their one-day series in Grenada on Friday.

The Caribbean side made 337 for four and Zimbabwe limped to 181 for nine after a poor start.
Charles’ 130 came off 111 balls and featured 12 fours and four sixes.

Bravo accelerated past his half-century, reaching 92 before the final over. Bravo blasted Kyle Jarvis over midwicket for six off the penultimate ball of the over and then a single off the last ball secured his first ODI century.
