West Indies wrap up one day series against Zimbabwe

1:07 pm on 13 March 2010

Dwayne Bravo led the way as West Indies secured a one-day series win over Zimbabwe with a four-wicket victory in the fourth match in St Vincent.

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, Narsingh Deonarine scoring an unbeaten 32.

The victory at Arnos Vale gave Chris Gayle's side an unassailable 3-1 lead with just the final game of the series remaining.

A determined 42 from Elton Chigumbura was the only resistance put up by a disappointing Zimbabwean batting line-up after the seam of Bravo, taking 4 for 21, and Ravi Rampaul, with 2 for 21, zipped through the upper order.

After losing the opening game of the series, three consecutive wins have shown the Caribbean team's superiority but they have struggled throughout against spin.
