Man of the Series

Devendra Bishoo

Zimbabwe can be mighty proud of this effort. They were staring down the barrel yesterday when they lost 4 wickets quickly with the deficit still sizable but didn’t they fight back or what! Raza was the savior once more and found a good ally in Moor as the duo put on a fine stand that took the game into the final day.

This Brings us the End of West Indies Short tour of Zimbabwe.There was stiff competition between the two sides but eventually, the lack of exposure showed in the hosts’ performance although they salvaged pride in this game in a big way.
