The tourists will be looking to improve in the final Test of the series against the West Indies.
Zimbabwe will be hoping to put up more of a fight in the second and final Test against the West Indies, after defeat within three days in the first match.
The tourists had shown some fight in their first innings in the first Test with opener Tino Mawoyo making a half-century and Zimbabwe scoring a reasonable 211.
The game looked open to both sides when the hosts only managed 307 all-out in reply, with Zimbabwean bowler Kyle Jarvis getting a five-for.
Yet in the tourists’ second innings they collapsed to a poor total of 107, with just three players getting into double figures and Craig Irvine the only man to make more than 20 runs.
This landslide of wickets meant that the West Indies needed just 12 runs to win with two-and-a-half days spare.
Despite losing the wicket of Kieran Powell early on, the result was never in doubt for Darren Sammy’s men as they cruised to a nine wicket victory.
The result highlighted there is still a long way to go for Zimbabwe as a Test cricket nation, as their current opponents are listed as the third worst side in the ICC rankings.
However, if the visitors can build on the occasional glimpses of promise they showed in the first Test they may be able to put on more of a show in the second.
This is not to say that the Zimbabweans will beat the West Indies, but if they can take the match to the full five days then that will be a victory in itself.
The second Test in Dominica starts at 14.00 GMT today.
