Madhevere earns maiden call-up in Zimbabwe’s limited-overs squad
Zimbabwe on Wednesday have called up a new face in the form of Wesley Madhevere for the upcoming limited-overs series against Bangladesh.
The series will also see with comeback of Sean Williams alongside the likes of Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Richmond Mutumbami.
Madhevere has earned his maiden call-up to the national side thanks to his impressive performance in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2020 earlier this year.
Apart from scoring two half centuries, the all-rounder also bagged eight wickets in the tournament.
“Wesley is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from Zimbabwe in recent years and his massive potential has been on show at the last three ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup tournaments, including the recent one in South Africa,” national selector Prosper Utseya said.
Meanwhile Williams had skipped the lone Test because of the birth of his daughter. But now he is all set to take part in the remainder of the series.
Chamu Chibhabha was named captain for the Zimbabwe limited-overs side earlier this year on an interim basis. Finally with the Bangladesh series he will have his first taste as captain in international cricket.
The three-match ODI series will begin on March 1 in Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. The ODI series will be followed by two T20Is in Dhaka on March 9 and 11.
Squad: Chamu Chibhabha (captain), Sikandar Raza Butt, Craig Ervine, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wesley Madhevere, Timycen Maruma, Christopher Mpofu, Carl Mumba, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Richmond Mutumbami (wicketkeeper), Ainsley Ndlovu, Brendan Taylor, Donald Tiripano, Charlton Tshuma, Sean Williams
