Terrance Duffin will lead a 16-man Zimbabwe squad on their one-day tour of West Indies, which starts later this month. Duffin was captain in the recent drawn series against Kenya and the squad for this tour consists of many of the players who took part in those matches.

Zimbabwe are marginally strengthened with the return of Charles Coventry and Vusi Sibanda, the top-order batsmen. Sibanda has 27 ODIs under his belt while Coventry has played nine times and struck one half-century.

Piet Rinke and Keegan Meth, who were a couple of the positives to arise from the series against Kenya, both make the trip. The bowling attack will be led by Edward Rainsford and Anthony Ireland. The tour originally included two Tests, but following Zimbabwe's withdrawal from that form of the game the one-day series was extended from five to seven matches. The first game is in Guyana on April 29.

Squad Terrence Duffin (capt), Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Elton Chigumbura, Charles Coventry, Keith Dabengwa, Ryan Higgins, Anthony Ireland, Ngonidzashe Mahwire, Keegan Meth, Tawanda Mupariwa, Edward Rainsford, Piet Rinke, Vusumuzi Sibanda, Gregory Strydom, Brendan Taylor (wk), Prosper Utseya.
