West Indies cricketers are now in South Africa for their upcoming Series.

The players arrived yesterday, 24 hours after their come-from-behind 3-1 victory over hosts Zimbabwe.

Speaking after the team touched down, captain Chris Gayle says the players are full of confidence going into the Series.

West Indies will play Three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and two 20/20 Internationals.

For the South Africa Series, West Indies have two changes in their squad from the Zimbabwe tour.

Left-arm pacer Pedro Collins and Daren Ganga are in for Ravi Rampaul and Narsingh Deonarine.

The tour starts with a game against a Makhaya Ntini Invitation Eleven in East London on Friday.

The first Twenty/Twenty international will be played on Sunday.

Gayle will miss the games on Friday and Saturday as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury
