    ***Official*** Zimbabwe in West Indies, 2013

    Three ODIs (all at St Georges, Grenada) 22, 24, 26 Feb

    Two T20s (both at North Sound, Antigua) 2 and 3 March

    Two Tests (Bridgetown, Barbados and Roseau, Dominica) 12-16 and 20-24 March

    First - and only - warm-up on Wednesday 20 Feb.

    I don't expect the Zims to win more than the odd one-dayer but they need to be playing Tests again, and a couple against one of the weaker sides may help - even if it's away from home.

    I suppose there's a chance these might be on Sky? They usually show WI home matches, then again they didn't show the Windies 'C' team against the Bangers a couple of years ago.

    And at least the cash-strapped ZCU are saving on travel costs between games.

    More messy politics undermining the Zimbabwe team. Still excited for the tour though. Will be great to see Williams in tests - he probably should be in the one day team as well.

    Ray's career is coming to an end.

    So do the Zimbas have no support staff with them? Surely a fitness coach at least is a must? Not to mention a tour manager to sort all the touring logistics and suchlike.

    Seems incredibly short-sighted.

    Good to see Zimbabwe playing tests again, at the very least.

    Lots of conflicting signals about why it has happened. I suspect money has more to do with it than ZC have let on.

    Dwayne Bravo to captain in the ODIs, Sammy and Gayle rested - and the keepers' revolving door contnues, with Ramdin returning for Thomas. Must be time for Baugh again soon though.

    Tony Cozier advocating the selection of Pollard for the Tests I see. Well it worked for Warner - but even if he comes off, against this opposition, what does it prove? He needs to be putting togther big scores consistently in the four-day competition.

    They should be expelled and isolated. Complete waste of time for the Windies.
    Twenty-over cricket can be “boring”. It has grown up. It takes concentration. It is no longer a game for the post-literate generation. They need the distractions, the loud music to disguise the boredom. They never warned you about that.

    That's a great way to rebuild cricket in Zimbabwe.

    Rather get A teams and the like to tour there, or like what SA did last year, send an SA XI, rather than a full side.

    Same thing should probably happen with Bangladesh.

    Sky showing it, makes for great feast of cricket with this, the India series and of course England in NZ.

    Too late now of course, but Bangladesh should have toured a few countries before starting to play Tests. Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe both made non-Test tours of England IIRC. Could finish with a match at Lord's against a strong MCC side.

    I'd forgotten this was on tomorrow. I don't really think the Windies will have that much trouble.

    Yeah we haven't lost in our last two odi series at home to Aus and NZ, away we've been poor though, anyway i expect the team to be..

    Charles
    Powell
    Darren Bravo
    Sarwan
    Dwayne Bravo
    Pollard
    Ramdin (wk)
    Permaul
    Narine
    Roach
    Best

    Though Cricinfo thinks Russell might play instead of Permy!!, all in all thats a decent enough team, would rather have one of our younger bowlers playing instead of Best though, there's Shannon Gabriel who done well in the tests in England, Jason Holder who looked decent against Australia and there's a young quick from Guyana who everyone is raving about, Ronsford Beaton is the name, just turned 20, 6'3 and fast as an arrow, roughed up Gayle and Pollard in our recent t20 competition too, and moves the ball both ways, many believe he's more advanced than Roach was at a similar age.

    EDIT: Barbados batsman Jonathan Carter has been called up to the squad because apparently Pollard is having travel problems, so he might play tomorrow, the lad is a very talented batsman who can also take wickets with his seam bowling, lately he's been getting loads of 40s and 50s but hasn't been able to convert but he's certainly one who we believe will be a good international batsman for us, his style is similar to Darren Bravo's, probably a little more defensive than Darren though.

    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".
