Kraigg Brathwaite‘s unbeaten fifty helped West Indies extend their lead over Zimbabwe to 215 on the third morning at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. Brathwaite added 82 for the second wicket with Kyle Hope, continuing his good work with Shai Hope for company as the hosts struggled to break through despite the reverse swing, spin and inconsistent bounce available for the bowlers. Zimbabwe were not helped by two dropped catches, both off Graeme Cremer’s bowling, and West Indies went to lunch at 155 for 2.
