BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe, – Batting coach Toby Radford said West Indies were guilty of panicking in the late stages of their Tri-Nations Series clash with Zimbabwe last Saturday, which resulted in the tied game at Queens Sports Club.

West Indies seemed en route to an uncomplicated victory in pursuit of 258 in their second game of the tournament, when they reached 220 for two in the 45th over.

However, they lost six wickets for 37 runs in the space of 32 balls – including three wickets in the last over with four runs required – as Zimbabwe forced their way back into the contest to earn a share of the points.
