Sarwan and Bravo lead West Indies to easy win
PORT-OF-SPAIN, May 15 (Reuters) Ramnaresh Sarwan stroked 91 and all-rounder Dwayne Smith took four wickets to steer West Indies to a comfortable victory over Zimbabwe in the seventh and final one-day cricket international.
After Sarwan's effort guided the hosts to 266 for eight in their 50 overs, Zimbabwe offered little challenge and West Indies restricted them to 162 all out to win by 104 runs yesterday.
It was West Indies' fifth victory in a series in which two matches were abandoned because of rain, leaving Zimbabwe without a win.
Sarwan hit six polished boundaries off 114 balls and featured in significant partnerships with Shivnarine Chanderpaul and captain Brian Lara after West Indies had won the toss for the fifth time in the series.
Zimbabwe's response lacked excitement in spite of a third-wicket stand of 59 between opener Vusi Sibanda and Brendan Taylor.
