The West Indies wrapped up a 3-0 series whitewash over Zimbabwe by winning the final one dayer in Grenada by five wickets, thanks to a steady unbeaten half century by Darren Bravo.

The batsman score 72 not out, following on from his century in the previous match, as the Windies reached 215 for five with 22 balls remaining, after the Zimbabweans made 211 for nine in their 50 overs.

Zimbabwe had won the toss and chose to bat first, hoping to prevent a humiliating third defeat in the space of four days, but they got off to an agonisingly slow start, going at two runs to the over in the first 10.

They lost wickets at regular intervals, with only Vusi Sibanda showing some resistance in the top order with a slow 41 off 60 balls. and if it weren't for Chamu Chibhabha's 48 not out at the end, they may not have reached the 200 mark.

The wickets were spread between the Windies bowlers, with Kemar Roach unlucky to go wicketless as he did most of the containment work early in the innings, going at only two to the over. Tino Best and Dwayne Bravo took two wickets each, while Veerasammy Permaul bagged three.

The Windies chase was not as fluid or easy as one would have expected, given their dominance in earlier matches. Ramnaresh SArwan, who made 120 in the second ODI, could only add 19 this time before becoming the first to fall.

From there, it was Darren Bravo who kept the knock on track, with most batsmen contributing middling scores. Kieran Powell was the only other batsman to go above 30, scoring 42 as the Windies reached their target in 46.2 overs, with Denesh Ramdin hitting a four to take them to 215.
