Zimbabwe are all set to face West Indies in a two-match Test series, but nothing is going right in the Chevrons' dressing room. 

The Craig Ervine led Zimbabwe side have been dealt with injuries to key players and the skipper hopes that his team will have all the players back in good shape ahead of the first Test starting next week.

Pacer Blessing Muzarabani was out of longer than expected and was also ruled out of the white-ball series against Ireland due to a quad injury. On the other hand, Tendai Chatara has been struggling with a knee injury and Ervine has his fingers crossed ahead of an important week for the Chevrons.

"We obviously have Sean Williams, who got a fracture early on in the T20I series. Tendai Chatara is also struggling with knee injury and we also have few tired bodies after the white-ball series against Ireland. I think we've got less than two weeks for the first Test, so we just have to try and get those players back in shape and try to manage out the injury issues," Ervine said.

Zimbabwe are likely to select their Test squad based on the performances of the players in the recently concluded series against Ireland.

The first Test begins from February 4, while the second Test is slated from February 12. Both the matches will be played at the Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo.
