Harare:

The fifth and final one-day international tour match between Zimbabwe and West Indies at Queens Sports Club here on Sunday has fallen victim to rain.

Umpires Brian Jerling and Kevin Barbour decided at 1415 local time that there was no prospect of a result, even if the weather cleared up.

It left West Indies with a 3-1 series victory and one no-result for the record books.

Man of the series was named as Jerome Taylor after the judges adjudged him to be a double match-winner.

West Indies will now move across the Limpopo River border to South Africa where they will face one of the world's best cricket countries in five one-day internationals and three Tests through December and January.

The 3-1 series win against Zimbabwe was below expectations for the visitors who had set out for a decisive clean sweep of an inexperienced local outfit who are not even allowed to play Tests.

The tourists went down to a shock defeat in the first encounter of the series, played at Harare.

Other negative factors were the temporary losses through injury of key batsmen Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

Dwayne Bravo took over the captaincy from Gayle and filled the position well.
