Cape Town - Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis are set to make their return to international cricket when Zimbabwe face West Indies in a two-match Test series scheduled to start this weekend.

The two players, who recently returned to the national fold after spending some seasons in English county cricket, are part of the 16-man squad selected for the series in Bulawayo.

Solomon Mire is in line to make his Test debut, while the uncapped wicketkeeper Nyasha Mayavo has also made the cut.

A total of seven changes have been made to the side that played in Zimbabwe’s last Test away to Sri Lanka in July, with Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Tendai Chisoro and Michael Chinouya being the other new faces.

The first Test is scheduled for 21-25 October, with the second match pencilled in for 29 October-2 November.

Both matches will be played at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.

Zimbabwe squad:

Graeme Cremer (captain), Hamilton Masakadza, Solomon Mire, Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Peter Moor, Regis Chakabva, Michael Chinouya, Christopher Mpofu, Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chisoro, Nyasha Mayavo
