From 35 for two, the West Indies rallied with a 75-run stand for the third wicket between Powell and Shai Hope, but Zimbabwe remained patient and never let the West Indian scoring accelerate.

Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer took four for 64 and Sean Williams three for 20 as West Indies lost its last seven wickets for 45 runs after deciding to bat first.

Electing to bat first, the West Indies did not get off to the best of starts as opener Kraigg Brathwaite was caught behind off the bowling of Kyle Jarvis, who was returning to worldwide cricket after ending his Kolpak deal with Lancashire.

He raised his half-century - his first in 13 innings since his return to worldwide cricket earlier this year - just before the hour mark of the session with a streaky four past the keeper off pacer Chris Mpofu.
