The Zimbabwe cricket team is set to clash with West Indies an in 4 one day games to be played form the 16th to the 19th of April.

The Zimbabwean side will have a chance to redeem lost pride, after throwing away a 1 nil lead to eventually lose 4-1 to the West Indies in a 5 match one day series recently held in the Caribbean.

The Zim side will need to polish up particularly on it’s batting after the team’s batsmen conspired to score paltry totals in their 4-1 defeat to the West Indies, despite the tremendous effort put in by a bowling attack largely dominated by the spinners.

While the team’s poor batting has proven to be of great concern in the sides overall performance, the absence of natural quick bowlers is another factor that is sure to present newly appointed coach Allan Butcher with headaches when Zimbabwe tours the Carribean.

While the West Indian wicket favored the spinners, the major worry will be Zimbabwe’s ability to adapt to wickets which suit pace attacks.

This leaves bowling coach Heath Streak with the task to nurture bowlers that can emulate the class that he exhibited in his playing days while batting coach Grant Flower has a big job to do in engineering bigger totals by Zimbabwe’s batsmen.
