Zimbabwe names ICC Twenty 20 World Cup squad

There were no major surprises in the squad except for the omission of all-rounder Shingi Masakadza who was expected to make the final 15.

Head of the selection panel said that while it was a tough decision to leave out Masakadza it was more difficult to leave out the pair of Richard Muzhange and Brian Vitori whom he was competing with.

“It was a tough decision but after considering form and recent statistics we had to go with Vitori and Muzhange, said Makoni. “Masakadza has got a bit more experience but these two have been in fine form of late.”

Muzhange only made his senior debut when Zimbabwe triumphed in a T-20 triangular series against both South Africa and Bangladesh recently.

Captain Brendan Taylor will lead the squad.


Brendan Taylor, Hamilton Masakadza, Vusi Sibanda, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Elton Chigumbura, Craig Ervine, Graeme Cremer, Raymond Price, Kyle Jarvis, Chris Mpofu, Richard Muzhange, Brian Vitori, Prosper Utseya, Forster Mutizwa and Malcolm Waller
