SHAI HOPE DELIVERED big yesterday, but his West Indies teammates could not finish the job.

The 23-year-old Barbadian achieved his first century in only his second One-Day International before a dramatic collapse led to a tie against Zimbabwe in the third match of the tri-nations series that also involves Sri Lanka.

Playing at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, Hope scored 101, and West Indies, chasing 258 from 50 overs, were well poised to win when they reached 220 for two before losing six wickets for 37 runs. They needed four runs from the last over but three wickets fell to leave the spoils shared.
