Bridgetown: Mar 12, 2013

Zimbabwe skipper Brendon Taylor won the toss and elected to bat against West indies in the first Test at Bridgetown on Tuesday.

Overcast weather conditions have been predicted for this match.

Zimbabwe face an uphill task to put up a formidable performance against the Windies.

West Indies have put up a clinical performance in this series winning every match they have played. Sunil Narine has not been named the 13-man squad declared by the hosts.

Marlon Samuels has made a comeback after the all-rounder missed the limited overs part of the series due to a facial injury.
