All-rounder Andre Russell's participation in the Big Bash was in doubt after he suffered a hamstring injury in Sydney Thunders six-wicket victory over Melbourne Stars.

The 29-year-old chased a ball to third man during the Stars innings but pulled up metres before the boundary ropes, dropping to the ground and clutching his left hamstring on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said the West Indies were ready to play two Twenty20 Internationals here next March once adequate security could be guaranteed.

West Indies batsman Shai Hope has said the disappointment of their tied game with Zimbabwe had taken some of the gloss off his maiden One-Day International (ODI) hundred. The 23-year-old stroked 101 but the West Indies, chasing 258 for victory in their second match of the tri-nations series also involving Sri Lanka here on Saturday, squandered a position of 220 for two by losing their last six wickets for 37 runs in the space of 32 balls, as scores ended level.

Hope, in only his second ODI after making his debut against Sri Lanka last Wednesday, said he was pleased with the personal achievement but that had been overshadowed by the result.

In a thrilling contest, Zimbabwe, after being on top early in the match and then losing their grip, succeeded in achieving a tie against West Indies in the third Blue Mountain Achilleion Cup match played at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo today. The match was dominated by two superb third-wicket partnerships, by Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza for Zimbabwe and by Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope for West Indies. Both teams suffered batting slumps after these stands were broken, setting the stage for a thrilling last-ball finish.

Having just played their 100th Test match, Zimbabwe now moved to Bulawayo to play their 200th one-day international. The pitch was slightly damp and slow, but hard, with a slow outfield, and the conditions suggested that the team winning the toss would want to bowl first. Graeme Cremer, no doubt advised by the Zimbabwe coach Heath Streak, went against conventional thought when winning the toss in the Second Test against Sri Lanka in Harare, by deciding to bowl first, and Zimbabwe paid the penalty then. This time he also did the unexpected by deciding to bat first.

The hitherto unconquered Sri Lanka met with disaster at Harare Sports Club today — unfortunately not at the hands of the hosts, but the West Indies team that had just arrived in the country to play their first match of the Blue Mountain Achilleion ODI Tri-Series.

The thought was that Sri Lanka were favourites to win this match, as they have played so well on their tour so far and were also much more used to conditions in Zimbabwe than the newly arrived and inexperienced Caribbean team. For the first 30 or so overs of this match Sri Lanka seemed to be in front, but West Indies revived due to fine innings by Jonathan Carter and two debutants, Shai Hope and Rovman Powell, who all passed 40.

Captain Jason Holder hopes the key areas addressed during the recent one-week camp in South Africa will see the West Indies turn the page on their dodgy One-Day International (ODI) form, in the tri-series in Harare.

The series involve the West Indies, Sri Lanka and hosts Zimbabwe. The West Indies begin their campaign against Sri Lanka on Wednesday before taking on the hosts on Saturday in their second outing.
