Zimbabwe beat the West Indies by five runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method in Bulawayo on Friday to book a place in Sunday’s final of the triangular one-day international tournament against Sri Lanka.

Rain ended the last round-robin match early after Zimbabwe fought back from a dismal start to post a competitive score and pegged the Windies back to 124 for five in the 28th over when play was halted.

Sikander Raza and Tendai Chisoro shared a record ninth-wicket stand of 84 to lift Zimbabwe to 218 for eight off 49 overs after rain had interrupted the early stages of the match.
