Zim face ODI test

ZIMBABWE will most likely retain the side that beat Bangladesh 3-2 for their tour of South Africa next month.


Zimbabwe leave for South Africa on September 10 for three ODIs against the Proteas and one Twenty-20 match against fran

chise side Eagles.


But before that, Zimbabwe will host three one-day games against Australia’s Commonwealth Bank Centre of Excellence academy who are currently playing in South Africa.


“We will pick the squad from guys who played against Bangladesh,” said Zimbabwe coach Kevin Curran, who also doubles as selector.


Curran expressed delight at the prospect of facing the South Africans, saying their strong neighbours will further expose his young side to top-class competition.


“The only way we can improve is by playing better and stronger opposition,” he said. — Staff Writer.
