Zimbabwe host West Indies for the first of a two-match Test series starting on Saturday.
The visiting side's slow progress after winning the toss was due to the spin-friendly surface, but also some combative bowling from Zimbabwe.
Taylor, who last played worldwide cricket at the 2015 World Cup, opted out of his Kolpak deal with Nottinghamshire towards the end of the recent county season and ended up signing a contract with Zimbabwe Cricket.
Prior two the two Tests against Zimbabwe West Indies will play a three-day tour match against Zimbabwe A starting on October 15.

The military said 850 terrorists have been killed in Marawi, along with 163 government troops and 47 civilians. Lorenzana said a rescued hostage pinpointed the location of the two terror leaders.
Zimbabwe's Test Squad: Graeme Cremer (capt), Hamilton Masakadza, Solomon Mire, Chamu Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Peter Moor, Regis Chakabva (wk), Michael Chinouya, Chris Mpofu, Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chisoro, Nyasha Mayavo.
But Cremer and Williams found turn and bounce on the pitch in Bulawayo to give Zimbabwe an early advantage in the first of two tests.
Both players announced recently that they were relinquishing their Kolpak status in order to return to global cricket.
All-rounder Solomon Mire, who moved back to Zimbabwe from Australia earlier this year, has been given his first Test cap.
