Mumbai, Nov. 20 : Zimbabwe coach Heath Streak is happy with the tie result in the recent match against West Indies in the Tri-Nation Series.
On Saturday the 50-over match between Zimbabwe and the West Indies played at the Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo did not produce a result in favour of any team.
"I am happy for a tie result even though we could have won the match had we fielded properly", the coach, Streak, speaking exclusively over his mobile, said.
"The result has kept us alive in the series so yes, we are satisfied", he added.
Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer went out of tradition and had chosen to bat first after winning the toss.
"It was our collective decision to bat first. Statistics can sometime be misleading when not many matches are played on a ground".
"It (Queens Sports Club) is my home ground so I know the wicket would be harder to bat second".
"We had the chances and as the end proved it wasn't easy to bat when the ball got older".
"We lost last six wickets for 60 runs...Had we finished better 280 would have been tough to eclipse", Streak added.
Donald Tiripano's last over yielded three wickets, however, no credit for two run-outs.
India's two officials witnessed the tie. C. Shamsuddin as an umpire and Javagal Srinath as match-referee.
It was the 150th ODI appearance for the local umpire Russell Tiffin.
