Uncapped all-rounder in Zimbabwe's squad for Bangladesh tour

Zimbabwe will tour Bangladesh for a five-game T20I series in May

Sikandar Raza will captain a 15-member group for the T20I series against Bangladesh. All-rounder Johnathan Campbell is the uncapped player in the unit, while Tadiwanashe Marumani and Faraz Akram have earned recalls. Campbell is an adept left-hand batter who bowls leg-spin.

The remaining players are the same as that featured in Zimbabwe's last T20I series away in Sri Lanka in January 2024.

The side includes veterans such as Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, and Craig Ervine. The pace attack will be led by Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava, with support from Clive Madande and Brian Bennett -- the impressive young guns in the side.
