Put into bat first the Zimbabwean side kept losing wickets regularly. None of the top order batsmen were able to make a significant contribution and had it not being for Coventry's 56 the score might had being even worse. The visitors made 161 in their 50 overs and lost all their wickets.
West Indies in reply got off to a to a flier as Gayle (63, 41b, 2x6, 8x4) seemd to be in a hurry to finish off the match. Once Gayle departed with the score on 96 the Zimbabwean spinners came to the fore as they once again spun a web around the West Indian batsmen. But Ramdin (21 not out, 34b, 1x4) ensured that West indis crossed the winning run.
