Zimbabwe pull off stunning win over WI

Zimbabwe exploited West Indies’ susceptibility to spin, as the home team, chasing a modest 106, were restricted to 79 for seven from their 20 overs to hand them a win in the only T20 between the two sides.

Zimbabwe’s spinners shared seven wickets with off-spinner Greg Lamb taking two for 14 from his four overs, while skipper Prosper Utseya and left-arm spinner Ray Price took one wicket apiece.

Choosing to bat, the visitors were dismissed for 105 in 19.5 overs, as Sammy collected five for 26 from 3.5 overs to trump Benn’s four for six from four overs for the third-best figures in a T20.
