Ramnaresh Sarwan crafted his first international hundred in nearly three years, as West Indies coasted to an easy seven-wicket victory over Zimbabwe to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in their One-day International series on Sunday here. The 32-year-old, in an unfamiliar role of opener, finished undefeated on 120, carrying West Indies to their target of 274 off 49 overs at the National Cricket Stadium. Earlier, Craig Ervine led three batsmen with half-centuries, as Zimbabwe defied Dwayne Bravo’s six-wicket haul to rattle up a credible 273 for eight.
Zimbabwe chose to bat after they won the toss and made a challenging 273-8 off 50 overs. West Indies replied with 274-3 to win by six balls to spare. The Windies won the opening match by 156 runs on Friday at the same venue.
