Half-centuries from Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, and Jason Holder put West Indies over the line for a win in their first outing of the ICC World Cup qualifier at the Takashinga Sports Club in Harare on Sunday.
In an unimpressive batting display, West Indies made 297 all out in 49.3 overs which was good enough for a 39-run win against the USA.
Gajanand Singh, the 35-year-old Guyanese American cricketer, plundered the West Indies bowling attack scoring an unbeaten 101 in almost a run a ball — his first ODI century.
However, his onslaught was not enough as his side closed on 258-7.
Nosthush Kenjige also fed himself off a rather sedate Windies attack, scoring a quick-fire 34 not out from 32 balls in an unbroken 76-run eighth-wicket partnership with Singh.
Shayan Jahangir contributed 39, and Aaron Jones 23, but the USA stuttered in the earlier part of their inning.
Kyle Mayers was the best of the bowlers with 2-30, while Alzarri Joseph picked up 2-68.
Akeal Hosein went wicket-less, but his performance was crucial as his 10 overs only cost 38 runs.
