Bravo helps WI to pocket ODI series

Zimbabwe were skittled for 141 in 48.2 overs and although West Indies stumbled in their reply they still had more than 15 overs to spare when they reached their target with Narsingh Deonarine scoring an unbeaten 32. The victory at Arnos Vale gave Chris Gayle's side an unassailable 3-1 lead with Sunday's final game of the series remaining.  Elton Chigumbura (42) was the only resistance put up by Zimbabwean batting line-up after the seam of Bravo and Ravi Rampaul (2/21) zipped through the top-order.
Gayle was in a hurry to get things over as he smashed 32 from 20 balls before he was caught by Graeme Cremer off Greg Lamb.
