Sarwan scores 90 but Zimbabwe wins

PROGRESS PARK, St.Andrew’s,  CMC-Recalled West Indies batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan, seeking a return to form, stroked 90 but it was not enough as Zimbabwe posted a comfortable 77 run victory over a UWI Vice Chancellor’s X1 here today.

The West Indies middle order batsman carefully built his innings as the Vice Chancellor’s X1 were bowled out for 269 runs in 48.9 overs after the visitors compiled a challenging score of 346 for seven at Progress Park.

Sarwan, a late inclusion in the Vice Chancellors X1, was the mainstay, helping to recover the innings to a respectable total after a poor start at six for the loss of two wickets.

Two other significant contributions came from  Shai Hope and Shamarh Brooks who scored  43 and 28 respectively.

Although Sarwan missed his century by ten runs, the right handed batsman led the consolidation of his team’s innings ahead of the first One Day International between West Indies and Zimbabwe at the national stadium on Friday.

Sarwan was recalled for the recent one-day tour of Australia following an 18-month absence from the West Indies side but struggled with the bat, managing just 12 runs from three innings.

The highlight of the Zimbabwe batting was Vusi Sibanda who top scored with 145 retired.

Sibanda reached a brilliant century with a big six over square with Zimbabwe at one stage motoring on to 203 for one off 31 overs.

Hamilton Masakadza contributed 56 and Tino Mawoyo 30.

The Zimbabwe and West Indies teams will have practice sessions Thursday ahead of their first clash on Friday.
