Windies pummel Zimbabwe

The West Indies have made short work of Zimbabwe in the fifth one-day international at St Lucia to take a 4-0 lead in their seven-match series.

In the first game played under lights in the Caribbean, the West Indies thrashed Zimbabwe by 10 wickets with more than 22 overs to spare after dismissing the tourists for a paltry 152.

Openers Chris Gayle and Sewnarine Chattergoon flayed the Zimbabwe attack, both clubbing unbeaten half-centuries.

Gayle made 95 at better than a run-a-ball while Chattergoon played a supporting hand with eight boundaries in his 54 off 78 balls.

Earlier, all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and Dave Mohammed both grabbed three wickets as Zimbabwe failed to bat out its 50 overs.

Bravo grabbed 3-24 from his 9.2 overs, while Mohammed snared 3-37 on debut.

Gregory Strydom was the best of the tourists, hitting four fours and two sixes on his way to 48 from 73 balls, while captain Terrence Duffin made a very patient 38 off 107 balls.

The series ends this weekend with a double-header at Port of Spain's Queen's Park Oval.
