Antigua: Mar 2, 2013
Zimbabwe take on the West Indies in the first T20 match at Antigua on Saturday.
Zimbabwe skipper Taylor won his fourth toss in a row and elected to bat first against the full strength side of the West Indies.
The return of skipper Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle strengthens the home side who went on to win the T20 World Cup in 2012.
As far as Zimbabwe are concerned, they will be the minnows of the contest and even one win will lift their spirits.
West Indies: Lendl Simmons, Johnson Charles, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Darren Sammy (c), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tino Best, Samuel Badree
Zimbabwe: Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Brendon Taylor(c & wk), Craig Ervine, Malcolm Waller, CJ Chibhabha, TC Mutombodzi, Prosper Utseya, Matt Jarvis, N Mushangwe, Chris Mpofu
