Editor's Pick (Test): Zimbabwe - West Indies

West Indies stood by their earlier team. I thought they might need a change. But guess they didn’t after all. They won the first test match by a whopping 117 runs. In their first innings, they hit 219. Shai Hope could not complete his century as he ran short of ten runs and a partner. Kieran Powell made for a good partner for a bit but wasn’t along his side long enough. In reply, Zimbabwe hit 159 runs. Not even a fifty on this side. With a 60 run lead, West Indies came in to hit 373 runs giving the opponent a target of a massive 433 runs. They had the physical as well as moral advantage here. 316 runs was not enough. Zimbabwe lost.
Devendra Bishoo won the man of the match award. His five wicket haul for 79 runs - phenomenal. Second innings saw him contribute 44 runs to the score and take 4 wickets again. He deserved it.
