Before to the six-match ODI series against Pakistani Shaheens, Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has revealed its lineup.
Zimbabwe has announced a strong squad to leave no stone left for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2023 on home soil, which is only a month away.
Sean Williams, a left-handed player, Craig Ervine, 37, and Tendai Chatara make up Zimbabwe’s experienced trio.
Along with the all-rounders Ryan Burl and Wessly Madhevere, spinners Brandon Mavuta and Wellington Masakadza, as well as the 26-year-old Blessing Muzarabani, and left-handed pacer Richard Ngarava, were also chosen.
