Muzarabani, Burl in Zimbabwe squad for SA Test


Zimbabwe have named the uncapped pair of fast bowler Blessing Muzarabani and batsman Ryan Burl in their 15-man squad for the historic four-day Test match against South Africa set to start on Boxing Day in Port Elizabeth.

The duo, together with paceman Tendai Chatara, are the only new faces to the side that faced West Indies in a two-match Test series in Bulawayo in October-November, while Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Michael Chinouya and Nyasha Mayavo will be staying home.

Captained by Graeme Cremer, Zimbabwe will arrive in South Africa this Saturday and first face the Cricket South Africa Invitation XI in a three-day practice match, a day-night affair, scheduled for 20-22 December at Boland Park in Paarl.

The four-day Test, a day-night match, will be played at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth, starting on 26 December.
