This will be Zimbabwe’s first Test Match since losing by 220 runs to Bangladesh in a one-off game in July 2021. They didn’t play any Tests during 2022 but did play Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh in 2021.

Former England Test player Gary Balance is set to make his first Test appearance for Zimbabwe. ZIM vs WI, There is no place for the experienced Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza in Zimbabwe’s squad, a clear sign that the selectors are looking to the future.

Innocent Kaia, Joylord Gumbie (wk), Gary Ballance, Craig Ervine (c), Milton Shumba, Tanunurwa Makoni, Chamu Chibhabha, Wellington Masakadza, Richard Ngarava, Victor Nyauchi, Donald Tiripano.

West Indies  

After losing their most recent Test series 2-0 against Australia in December, including defeats by 164 and 419 runs, we expect West Indies to be far more competitive in this match.

Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel with left-arm spinners Gudakesh Motie and Jomel Warrican have all been recalled to the squad. ZIM vs WI, Kraigg Brathwaite has scored over 5000 Test runs and will lead the team on this tour. He was in excellent form in 2022, hitting 160 against England in Bridgetown in March and another century (110) against Australia at the Perth Stadium in late November. 

West Indies Playing XI

Zimbabwe vs West Indies Match Prediction

With hot weather forecast over the five scheduled days, there could be some long days in the field for both teams in this Test. Gary Ballance will add some grit and determination to Zimbabwe’s batting line-up but overall it will be hard for them against a good West Indies side. Our prediction for this First Test of the series is a victory for West Indies.
