Shillingford Six Gives Home Side Victory

Zimbabwe's slim hopes of victory all but disappeared in the first over on day three as they lost captain Brendan Taylor for just six. The remainder of the middle-order folded to Shane Shillingford, who ended with six for 49, and but for Craig Ervine, who was dropped twice, an innings defeat would have been the result. As it was, just two overs after an interestingly scheduled lunch interval, West Indies wrapped up a nine-wicket win.
