SHAI HOPE’S MAIDEN one-day hundred proved in vain as West Indies amazingly squandered an ideal opportunity for a second straight win in the Tri-Nations Series by playing to a nerve-jangling tie with Zimbabwe yesterday.

Requiring a mere four runs from the last over in pursuit of 258 for victory at Queens Sports Club, the Caribbean side dramatically lost three wickets while scoring just three runs, as they reluctantly secured their share of history in the 34th tie in One-Day Internationals.

The task appeared a simple one when captain Jason Holder took a single to cover off the first ball of the over from seamer Donald Tiripano (2-26), but Carlos Brathwaite then lost the plot off the second delivery, holing out to long on for nine. (CMC)
