WICKET! Third wicket for Donald Tiripano in his sixth over, fourth in the match as Jonathan Carter fails to get a touch of the ball and Peter Moor hits the stumps.

Two off two as Tiripano claims his third wicket. Carlos Brathwaite and Ashley Nurse fail to capitalise the momentum as they lose their wickets in quick succession. WI need 1 in 1.

WICKET! Sean Williams strikes again in one over, first Brathwaite departs followed by Rovman Powell. Brathwaite tries to go over the line but finds long-off while Powell tried to swipe the ball but misses it as Williams bowls a brilliant yorker.

expressguest November 19, 20166:08 pm

Couple of fours from Evin Lewis’ bat as West Indies continue their chase without taking any risk. West Indies’ batsmen have scored 58 runs in first ten overs after losing Charles early in the eight over.

expressguest November 19, 20165:49 pm

Charles has gone upstairs as he thinks that the ball from Tiripano was missing the stumps. Charles ll have to go because the ball is just about clipping leg stump. Tiripano gets the first breakthrough and a crucial one.

expressguest November 19, 20165:37 pm

Kraigg Brathwaite (12) and Johnson Charles (12) have given a steady start to West Indies as the duo has added 24 runs in first five overs. Donald Tiripano to bowl the sixth over.

Kraigg Brathwaite and Johnson Charles to open the innings for West Indies. Chris Mpofu and Donald Tiripano to open with the ball for Zimbabwe.

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20165:11 pm

Remarkable finish for the hosts Zimbabwe. A wicket on the final ball but the damage was done as they score 257 in their inning despite losing a couple of wickets in the middle. This is Zimbabwe’s best ODI total this year and the first time in eight attempts they’ve managed to play the entire 50 overs. Could be difficult for West Indies?

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20164:08 pm

West Indies get past the 200 run mark but lose two wickets in succession to once again squander the advantage and the momentum. First Sikandar Raza is dismissed on 77 by Carlos Brathwaite with Kraigg Brathwaite taking the catch. Next over, Nurse getting Sean Williams leg before. But Ervine is continuing strong – Into the 80’s now

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20163:47 pm

Both Sikandar Raza and Craig Ervine well past their fifty run mark. And Zimbabwe have taken this game by the scruff of the neck and the run rate is hovering around the five run mark. At 178/2 after 37 overs

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20162:42 pm

Zimbabwe once again getting a move on after losing the openers in two successive Carlos Brathwaite overs. They’re 87/2 after 21 overs with Craig Ervine on 27 and Sikandar Raza on 17 as Ashley Nurse replaces Brathwaite.

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20162:16 pm

Brian Chari c Jason Holder b Carlos Brathwaite 15 (41)

Once again, Brathwaite’s first ball of the over produces a wicket. This time it goes to the West Indian bowler. And what a catch! Absolute belter by Holder to run back from short midwicket and avoid collission with fielder from deep square leg to hold on to the catch on the run. A dive for good measure.

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20162:03 pm

Chamu Chibhabha run out 25 (33)

As Carlos Brathwaite comes into the attack, the first ball undoes all the hard work by Chibhabha. Miscommunication between Brian Chari and Chamu and Brian has his back to his partner. Caught ball watching and the keeper lobs the ball back to Brathwaite who has the simple task of running him out

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20161:57 pm

No wickets with the pace attack but the runs are not flowing as one would expect in the early overs. 36/0 after 10 overs. And with that, there’s spin. Suliemann Benn comes on the attack

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20161:44 pm

The slow pace of this Zimbabwe start could hur them at a later stage. Just 20 runs from the first seven overs with Shannon Gabriel going for 14 runs from four overs and Jason Holder conceding six in three overs

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20161:14 pm

Slow start by Zimbabwe with just two runs coming from the firts two overs. Surprising move by Zimbabwe to bat after winning the toss. The conditions are ideal for seamers to make merry and both Gabriel and Holder likely to make an early mark

Tanuj Lakhina November 19, 20161:10 pm

Brian Chari and Chamu Chibhabha to open the innings for Zimbabwe. Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder to open with the ball for the West Indies.

In the opening game:
Sri Lanka record easy victory chasing down Zimbabwe’s 154

De Silva made his highest ODI score off 75 balls as his side reached their target in less than half the allocated time after Zimbabwe were bowled out for 154 in 41.3 overs.
Niroshan Dickwella made 41 in the other significant contribution as Sri Lanka compiled 155 for two in 24.3 overs.
Earlier, the visiting seamers scythed through the top order to leave Zimbabwe 50 for six before Peter Moor (47) and captain Graeme Cremer (31 not out) fought back.
Sri Lanka meet West Indies at the same Harare Sports Club venue on Wednesday while Zimbabwe’s next game is against West Indies in Bulawayo on Saturday.
