Zimbabwe batsman Sean Williams and girlfriend, Chantelle Dexter, have received death threats, according to a report in the <i>Daily News</i>.

Williams recently signed a new national contract after missing the two-Test series against Pakistan in Harare, which ended in a one-all draw, and pleaded for help from followers of a Facebook forum, <i>Zim Cricket Talks</i>.

"Hi, everyone. If anybody knows a person that goes by the name of Alberto Rodriguez please let me know as he has been sending rape and death threats to my girlfriend and myself. Your help will be greatly appreciated if you know him or his whereabouts," wrote Williams.

Seamer Tendai Chatara, meanwhile, is likely to be awarded a contract soon. Chatara was instrumental in the hosts' campaign against the Pakistanis last month, clinching 11 wickets.

"That contract is a reward to players who are excelling at the top level and that has been explained to the players. We cannot work on a minimum number; we look at performances and select players on merit," concluded convener of selectors Givemore Makoni.
