Johnson Charles played a brilliant match-wining knock as West Indies beat Zimbabwe by 10 wickets to win their two-match T20 Series 2-0 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday night.

The powerful opener smashed 92 not out off just 48 balls with six big sixes and 10 boundaries to be named Man-of-the-Match.



His opening partner Andre Fletcher made 56 not out off 35 balls with three sixes and five fours, on a good batting surface.

Windies motored to a victory target of 154 without loss after the Zimbaweans made 153-7 off 20 overs.

The best bowler was seamer Carlos Brathwaite with 3-23, which helped to restrict the innings after a solid start.

Scores: ZIMBABWE 153-7 off 20 overs (Vusi Sibanda 64, Sikandar Raza 23; Carlos Brathwaite 3-23, Dwayne Bravo 2-11, Jerome Taylor 2-35) WEST INDIES 154-0 off 12.4 overs (Johnson Charles 92 not out, Andre Fletcher 56 not out)
