For S. Africa, Australia Games Now Zimbabwe Names Cricket Squad



Zimbabwe has named a 32-member training squad which includes Pakistan-born opening batsman Sikander Razza Butt as it warms up for this month's commitments against A sides from South Africa and Australia.

Razza has expressed his willingness to play for his adopted home Zimbabwe after settling in the country along with his relatives a few years ago, the Herald reported on Friday.

But his inclusion in the national time may must wait a tiny longer as they has been waiting for the Immigration Department to regularize his alter of citizenship.


The squad also includes new faces like Lovemore Manatsa, Maxwell Chifamba, Brian Vitori and a legion of more young players like Tendai Chatara, Natsai Mushangwe, Shingi Masakadza and Kyle Jarvis who had been sidelined by injury for the better part of last season.

"It's an enlarged squad which includes experienced players, babies and those coming from injury like Kyle Jarvis," assistant coach Steve Mangongo said.

Regulars like captain Elton Chigumbura, Brendan Taylor, Ray Cost, Tatenda Taibu and Graeme Cremer have also been included.

The Zimbabwean 2011/12 international and domestic cricket season will commence on the 26 th of June with the arrival of the Australian and South African A teams.

Zimbabwe are set to host the sides in a triangular series from June 29 to July 6 and then engage the Australians in four-day games afterwards
