With Zimbabwe's scoreboard reading 301, both skippers Cremer and Holder started the handshakes and their mutual consent saw the game finish in a draw.
Twitter lauded Holder for a responsible innings with the bat, while Brendan Taylor was trolled for his constant failures.
Zimbabwe finished at 140 for the loss of four and had a slender 18-run second innings lead at stumps.
Windies batsmen decided to stick to their defensive approach and the scoring rate took a lot of time to get over 2 runs an over.
After batting 47 overs in the day, the Windies scored at a run rate slower than two.
Whilst the other batsmen kept tottering, Masakadza kept batting as though he was existing on another planet.
For the second and last Test, Windies will have to work hard if they don't want to share the honors with their counterparts.
The effort from the Zimbabwe was appreciable, but they fell 117 runs short of their target and took a 1-0 lead in the series.
Windies currently have a 429-run second innings lead and have amassed 369 runs in the second innings for the loss of 8 wickets at stumps on day 3.
They have a 158-run cushion to deal with and some good stands will win them the game on day 3.
