Zimbabwe name squad for NZ ODIs


Zimbabwe have named a 15-man squad for the first two matches of their three-match ODI series which they will host against New Zealand, starting in Harare on Sunday.

The list sees the return of batsman Craig Ervine after he missed the recent ODIs against India because of a hamstring injury.

Offspinner John Nyumbu finds a place in the squad even though his last ODI was against Bangladesh in December last year.

The side will be captained by Elton Chigumbura with all the matches being played at the Harare Sports Grounds.

Zimbabwe squad: Elton Chigumbura (Captain), Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Sikandar Raza Butt, Sean Williams, Regis Chakabva (WK), Graeme Cremer, Prosper Utseya, Tinashe Panyangara, Christopher Mpofu, John Nyumbu, Vusimuzi Sibanda, Luke Jongwe, Neville Madziva
