West Indies dumped from Tri-Nation series

West Indies were dumped from the Tri-Nations Series after rain, combined with careless cricket, condemned them to a shocking five-run loss to Zimbabwe  in a must-win contest.

West Indies slumped to 93 for five in the 23rd over, as they failed to cope with left-arm spinners Sean Williams (2-18) and Tendai Chisoro (2-23). When the rains finally arrived midway during the 28th over, West Indies were 124 for five, but unfortunately short of the 130 runs required.

The Caribbean side’s sloppiness cost them dearly, When they allowed the hosts to recover from 127 for eight in the 37th over to reach 218 for eight off their allotted 49 overs.  The West Indies could only collect seven runs off the last nine deliveries of the game, before rain shattered their hopes of a berth in the championship contest.

In the final today, between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets.
