Windies face Zimbabwe in crucial World Cup qualifiers

West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach is in-line to make a return to the team after missing the Super Sixes opener against Afghanistan. Roach has taken six wickets in three games in Zimbabwe so far with his last match coming against the Netherlands. However, the Barbadian fast bowler has been declared fit for an important contest against the home side on Tuesday morning Jamaica time.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe could become the ninth team to qualify for the 2019 ICC World Cup but must get by the West Indies in an important contest at the Super Sixes stage of the World Cup qualifiers on Monday morning. The Windies who came into the Super Sixes with four points, lost their opening game against Afghanistan and a win would put them in a strong position heading into their last game against Scotland.

Zimbabwe currently leads the table with 5 points, one more than the Windies. A defeat to Zimbabwe however would put the Windies in a must win situation in their final game against Scotland who are also on five points. It means then the Caribbean side could only get to six points with Ireland or Afghanistan also in line to go to six. The West Indies/Zimbabwe game is set to start at 2:30 am Jamaica time on Monday morning.
