Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has announced a 15-member squad which will tour Pakistan for three one day internationals and two T-20s this month.

ZC convenor of selectors Givemore Makoni announced named the squad.

Wicket-keeper batsman Regis Chakabva who was part of the Zimbabwe World Cup squad has been excluded from the Chevrons side together with Tafadzwa Kamungozi and Stuart Matsikenyeri.

Among those to make the Chevrons squad are captain Elton Chigumbura, Vusi Sibanda, Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza and Sikander Razza Butt.

Charles Coventry makes a welcome return to the cricket team which also features all rounder Sean Williams, Craig Ervine and wicket-keeper batsman Richmond Mutumbami.

Roy Kaia's impressive domestic form has attracted the attention of selectors after also being included in the 15-man squad.

Bowlers selected for the Pakistan tour Are Tinashe Panyangara, Brian Vitori, Tawanda Mupariwa, Christopher Mpofu and Prosper Utseya.

Unavailable for selection are Tendai Chatara who is injured, Solomon Mire who has commitments in Australia and Brendan Taylor who retired from international cricket after the World Cup.
