Zimbabwe will be hosting the West Indies for a short tour in October. The Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) confirmed that they will host two Tests in Bulawayo at the Queens’ Sports Club. This will be Zimbabwe’s first Test engagement since their tour of Sri Lanka in July.
The first Test will be played from October 21-25, while the second one will follow from October 29. A three-day warm-up from October 15 will precede the series opener.
Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis are both expected to make their international comebacks during the series. Zimbabwe will be depending on the two during the 2019 World Cup qualifiers. These could take place in the West Indies next March. West Indies, who failed to qualify automatically, will be among their opponents in that tournament and Zimbabwe will perhaps use this series to gauge how they will match up.
