ZIM vs West Indies 1st Test: full commentary , full scorecard

The tourists are trying to maintain an unbeaten record after winning seven of the last 10 Tests against South Africa and drawing three.

It will be a special occasion for West Indies legend Brian Lara and Zimbabwe coach Dave Houghton and batsman Gary Ballance.

Lara, who scored 11,953 runs in 131 Tests over 16 years, debuted as performance custodian with the West Indies after a 2-0 series loss in Australia two months ago.

Houghton takes charge of a Test match for the first time since being appointed in mid-2022 and has dramatically improved white-ball results.

After switching allegiances after playing for England in Tests and One Day Internationals, Ballance made his Test debut for the country of his birth at the age of 33.
