West Indies eked out a 31-run win against Zimbabwe, on Wednesday, to claim the third spot in the points table of the keenly-contested Group B and keep their campaign alive in the ongoing T20 World Cup. West Indies posted 153 for 7 after choosing to bat first, led by Johnson Charles’s 36-ball 45 and backed up by valuable contributions by Rovman Powell (21-ball 28) and Akeal Hosein (18-ball 23). However, Zimbabwe never got going in the chase, losing three wickets in the powerplay and failing to stitch any partnerships of note hitherto. They were eventually bundled out for a paltry 122.
