The West Indies probably did not expect that Zimbabwe would give such a competition in this test match which started last Saturday. That is why the West Indies team continued its first innings without declaring until the third day. Tejanarine Chandrapal (207 not out: 467 balls 16×4, 3×6) registered an unbeaten double century in the West Indies team. Another opener Craig Brathwaite (182: 312 balls 18×4) hit a century. The pair put on a partnership of 336 runs for the first wicket. Among the Zimbabwean bowlers, Brandon Mawuta took five wickets.
Zimbabwean middle-order batsman Gary Ballance (135 batting: 12×4, 2×6 off 228 balls) scored a century on Tuesday, the fourth day of the match. Although he did not get much support from his teammates, he was fighting alone and testing the patience of the West Indies bowlers. As the match is going to end on Wednesday, it is likely to end in a draw.
