GROS ISLET, St Lucia, May 11 (Reuters) West Indies debutant Dave Mohammed and Dwayne Bravo each grabbed three wickets to help limit Zimbabwe to a modest total in the fifth one-day international here.

Zimbabwe, who batted first after winning the toss in the first day-night international in the Caribbean, struggled throughout and were dismissed for 152 in 49.2 overs.

Left-arm wrist spinner Mohammed bowled with clever variation to collect three for 37 from 10 overs, while all-rounder Bravo, who took two of his wickets with successive balls in the final over, finished with three for 24 from 9.2 overs.

Mohammed struck with his sixth delivery to bowl Vusi Sibanda for four with a googly that spun across the batsman. He removed Blessing Mahwire for a third-ball duck in a similar manner.

Mohammed's other victim, Keith Dabengwa, attempted to cut and became a rare hit wicket scalp.

Gregory Strydom top-scored with 48 from 73 balls, smashing two sixes off Mohammed before Bravo bowled him off the inside edge with a slower ball in the last over of the innings.

Bravo, who ended the innings by bowling Anthony Ireland with the first ball he faced, had earlier removed Brendan Taylor for 21 with a catch at mid-on.

Taylor and captain Terry Duffin put on 36 for the second wicket.

Duffin laboured to 38 off 107 balls before he was run out at the non-striker's end by wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin's direct hit.

West Indies lead the seven-match series 3-0.
