Zimbabwe name T20I squad against Bangladesh

Zimbabwe have named squad for the three-match Twenty20 international (T20I) series against Bangladesh, which will be played in Harare this Saturday, although fast bowlers Tendai Chatara and Blessing Muzarabani will miss out through injury.

Victor Nyauchi has been brought in to supplement the pace attack alternatives in their absence.

Chatara suffered a collarbone fracture and Muzarabani a thigh muscle rupture during the qualification event in Bulawayo earlier this month, which Zimbabwe won to secure a berth in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022, which will be hosted in Australia beginning in October.

Their replacements during that eight-team contest, all-rounder Tony Munyonga and pace bowler Tanaka Chivanga, have also been retained in the squad that will take on Bangladesh.

Zimbabwe will take on Bangladesh in the first T20I match at Harare Sports Club on Saturday, before the two sides lock horns again 24 hours later.

The third game is scheduled for 2 August at the same venue.
