World champions West Indies cruised to an eight-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in the first Twenty20 international on Saturday.

Zimbabwe won the toss and batted, but made just 130-8 in their 20 overs.

Lendl Simmons then smashed an undefeated 63 with six sixes as West Indies wrapped up victory with 23 balls to spare.

The second match takes place at the same Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Sunday.
