Chevrons captain, Sean Williams has expressed confidence with the composition of the squad which includes young blood ahead of the Afghanistan series, saying the move is a giant step forward in preparation for the future.
Williams believes the youth players included in the squad to face Afghanistan from March 2 in UAE are good ambassadors of the country and can brew a shocker in the five-match series.
“Of course, Afghanistan are a good side and they have developed over the years but we are confident with the composition of our team. The youngsters have been doing well on the domestic scene of late and we believe with the guidance and support from some senior players they will gain the much-needed experience and confidence as we look into the future.
“I believe there has to be a system which makes sure we don’t have novices in the team while all the seasoned guys retire or are injured, hence the fusion of experienced perennial campaigners and the budding cricketers is a welcome development,” he said.
The Zimbabwe squad which travelled to Abhu Dabi includes pacer Richard Ngarava (23) and leg spinner Brendon Mavuta (23), Blessing Muzarabani (24), 20-year-old sensation Wesley Madhevere, opener Kevin Kasuza (27) who comes in to replace Chamu Chibhabha who has been injured, as well as spinner Wellington Masakadza (27), among others.
The Chevrons will take on the Afghans in 2 Test matches and 3 T20Is from the second to the 20th of next month in Abhu Dabi, United Arab Emirates.
