West Indies named an unchanged squad on Tuesday for its tour to Zimbabwe later this month.

The same 15 players that lost a three-match Test series 2-1 will be heading to Zimbabwe.

"The dedication, commitment and focus in their preparation and during the series in England showed immense character for such a young team in very difficult conditions against world-class competition," said Courtney Browne, chairman of the Cricket West Indies selection panel. "The lessons learnt on that tour augurs well for the individual players and the team's continued development as a whole and we wish them well on the tour of Zimbabwe."

West Indies will play two Tests against Zimbabwe following a three-day tour match against Zimbabwe A starting on October 15.
