Zimbabwe vs West Indies, 2nd Test: Probable XIs, Match Prediction, Weather Forecast, Pitch Report, and Live Streaming Details


Zimbabwe and West Indies will play the second Test at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo on Sunday, February 12.

The first Test between the sides ended in a draw, but the fifth-day session was exciting. Zimbabwe was 120-6 after having to chase 272 to win.

However, Tafadzwa Tsiga and Wellington Masakadza’s 14-run partnership off 10.2 overs salvaged the hosts. Gudakesh Motie and Roston Chase took four and two wickets to give West Indies a chance in the rain-plagued contest.

The West Indies started the Test with Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul’s 336-run opening stand. Chanderpaul scored his first Test hundred, while Brathwaite missed a well-deserved double with 182.

Only Gary Ballance and Kepler Wessels have scored hundreds for two nations in Test cricket. Brandon Mavuta scored 56 runs and took five wickets.
