West Indies


Zimbabwe will clash with West Indies in the first fixture of the two-test match series starting February 4 at Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo. It will be the first-ever red-ball match for the Chevrons after July 2021, when they lost by 220 runs to Bangladesh. Craig Ervine will lead the side, which will miss the services of their top players like Sikandar Raza and Ryan Burl. However, the county experience of Gary Ballance will be handy for the side. 

West Indies, on the other hand, have a strong squad under the captaincy of Kraigg Brathwaite. The likes of Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder will play a key role for the team. They had a good outing in the practice game and would look to continue the same form.
