Commentary

West Indies won by an innings and 65 runs | West Indies Vs Zimbabwe Live Score, 2nd Test

That's all we have for you from here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. See you next time and until then it's good bye from all of us here....
Shane Shillingford: Definitely I am happy to perform well in front of my home crowd. The bounce was consistent in this pitch compared to Barbados and we had a good score on the board. There was no pressure playing in my home ground. I am happy to have broken the record of Walsh for the most wickets in a 2-match series. I want to thank all my fans who have come out to support me.
Shane Shillingford is the Man of the Match for his match figures of 10/93. He is also the Man of the Series for taking 19 wickets.
Darren Sammy: We wanted to win the Test series, but we managed to win all the matches in this series, including the ODIs and T20Is. We are disappointed for the crowds for finishing the match quickly, but I hope they have enjoyed the way we played. Shilingford has been the major factor, but all other bowlers also chipped in with wickets. The batsmen also played well and we got important partnerships at the right time. Gayle and Chanders played well in this match. Some of the guys will be leaving for IPL including me and then we will go to England for the Champions Trophy.
Brendan Taylor: We came here to perform well, but I am disappointed by the way things have turned out. We need to regroup and go back home to prepare for the Bangladesh series. Full credit to West Indies for the way they played. It's always going to be tough performing on this wicket, but we need to practice hard. We have lot of areas of concern, we need to go home and sort it out.
Zimbabwe have really done very badly here, now questions of giving them a Test status will pop up after their dismal show. No one showed determination to hang around, again they threw away a good start and with it the game as well. Shane Shillingford was brilliant as usual and was well supported by Marlon Samuels. The game did not go any further than Day 3 in both the Tests, something that would really worry the Zimbabwe management. West Indies have won every single game in this series, including the ODIs and T20Is. Stay tuned for the post match presentation.
42.2 Marlon Samuels to Tendai Chatara W
out Caught by S Gabriel!! Would you believe it West Indies just needed a session and a half to wrap the series up. Flatter delivery on the stumps, Chatara goes across the line and slog sweeps it straight into the hands of deep mid-wicket. This is the sixth consecutive win for West Indies in Tests. Chatara c S Gabriel b Marlon Samuels 0(1)
3 wickets for Marlon Samuels
Tendai Chatara, right handed bat, comes to the crease
42.1 Marlon Samuels to Kyle Jarvis W
out Caught by Sammy!! Sammy cannot believe that he has just gifted a catch to him. Flatter down the leg side, looks to flick, but flicks it too fine and straight to leg slip. Just one more to go for West Indies. Jarvis c Sammy b Marlon Samuels 1(2)
41.6 Shane Shillingford to Prosper Utseya 0
no run, flighted delivery on the off stump, Utseya defends well
41.5 Shane Shillingford to Prosper Utseya 0
no run, tossed up on the off stump, Utseya comes on the frontfoot and defends
41.4 Shane Shillingford to Prosper Utseya 2
2 runs, flicked away off his pads to deep mid wicket
41.3 Shane Shillingford to Kyle Jarvis 1
1 run, flatter delivery outside off stump, Jarvis drives it uppishly to cover
Kyle Jarvis, right handed bat, comes to the crease
41.2 Shane Shillingford to Graeme Cremer W
out Caught by Marlon Samuels!! Another one bites the dust. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Cremer advances and gets to pitch of the ball, looks to go over the top, mistimes it and it goes straight down the throat of mid-wicket. This is Shillingford's second 10 wicket haul at this ground. And also the 8th West Indian to take two 10 wicket hauls. Cremer c Marlon Samuels b Shillingford 20(39) [4s-1 6s-1]
5 wickets for Shane Shillingford
