Regis Chakabva is set to lead Zimbabwe in the three-match ODI series against India starting from August 18. The 50-overs leg, a part of the ICC ODI Super League, will be played at the Harare Sports Club. The second and third games are scheduled for August 20 and 22.
The hosts will, however, be without Blessing Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara and Wellington Masakadza as they are recuperating from thigh muscle tear, collarbone fracture and shoulder tendon injuries respectively.
“Regis Chakabva will lead the home side in the absence of regular captain Craig Ervine who is still nursing a left hamstring tear. Zimbabwe will also be without Blessing Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara, and Wellington Masakadza who are recuperating from thigh muscle tear, collarbone fracture, and shoulder tendon injuries respectively,” reported Zimbabwe Cricket in their official statement.
Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have announced that KL Rahul has recovered from Covid-19 and will be leading the Men in Blue on the Zimbabwe tour. Rahul’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan will serve as the vice-captain of Team India.
