Chibhabha to lead Zimbabwe in ODI and T20 series

ESPNCRICINFO, Harare

Allrounder Chamu Chibhabha, who last played white-ball cricket for Zimbabwe in 2018, has been named captain of both the ODI and T20I sides for the ongoing Bangladesh tour. Sean Williams, the regular long-format captain who had missed the one-off Test due to the birth of his daughter, has returned to the side, but not as captain.

Williams had led Zimbabwe in their most-recent white-ball game in Singapore in October 2019. In January earlier this year, though, Chibhabha had been appointed limited-overs captain on an “interim basis”. Chibhabha was in fine form in the Pro 50 Championship in 2019, where he was Mashonaland Eagles' top scorer, with 165 runs in five innings at an average of 33.

Nineteen-year-old allrounder Wesley Madhevere has made a swift step-up from Under-19 cricket, earning his maiden call-up to the senior side. An offspinner who can also bat, Madhevere claimed 4 for 42 and followed it with a 45-ball 52 in the Under-19 World Cup match against England, although in a losing cause. He has also been among the runs and wickets for Eagles in domestic cricket.

Seamer Charlton Tshuma, who made his Test debut earlier this week against Bangladesh, has also found a place in the white-ball sides. Wicketkeeper-batsman PJ Moor was omitted, with Richmond Mutumbami being preferred ahead of him.

The batting line-up has a familiar look, with the likes of Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza and Williams lending experience. Carl Mumba, who last played ODI cricket in 2017, is back in the limited-overs mix. The 24-year-old, however, is uncapped in T20I cricket. The vastly experienced Chris Mpofu rounds off the seam attack.

Meanwhile, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Ainsley Ndlovu are the frontline spinners in the squad. Williams could assist them with his left-arm fingerspin.

The three-match ODI series begins on March 1, with all three matches set to be played in Sylhet. Dhaka will host the following two T20Is, with the tour set to finish on March 11.

ODI and T20I squads: Chamu Chibhabha (capt), Sikandar Raza, Craig Ervine, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wesley Madhevere, Timycen Maruma, Christopher Mpofu, Carl Mumba, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Ainsley Ndlovu, Brendan Taylor, Donald Tiripano, Charlton Tshuma, Sean Williams.
