Zim names T20 squad after player strikes

ZIMBABWE called up spinner Tafadzwa Kamungozi for the World Twenty20 and finally submitted its squad on Friday following a player strike that put the team´s participation in doubt.

Kamungozi´s inclusion was the only major surprise. The 26-year-old legspinner played the last of his four one-day internationals in 2006 and has no international T20 experience.

Brendan Taylor captains the squad for the tournament in Bangladesh starting on March 16, and where Zimbabwe faces games against Ireland, Netherlands and United Arab Emirates to qualify for the main Super 10 stage.

Zimbabwe was given permission to name its 15-man squad late after months of problems over non-payment resulted in players going on strike late last year and the national team not training.

Players have now been paid after the struggling Zimbabwe cricket board was given a $3 million loan by the ICC.

Hamilton Masakadza is the most experienced batsman alongside skipper Taylor.
