Windies clinch series

Roseau: Shane Shillingford grabbed another five wicket haul to bowl West Indies to a second successive Test win over Zimbabwe but this time in front of a delirious home town crowd in Dominica on Friday.

The tall spinner again wreaked havoc with five wickets for 34 as West Indies won by an innings and 65 runs inside three days with Zimbabwe bowled out for 141 in their second innings, well short of forcing the home side to bat again.

Zimbabwe, beaten by nine wickets in last week’s first Test in Barbados, offered little resistance after being asked to bat at the start of the third day in Roseau still 206 runs behind the West Indies who declared on the overnight total of 381 for eight. Zimbabwe were bowled out some 30 minutes before tea.
