Zimbabwe are attending a training camp in preparation for the Bangladesh triangular series at the beginning of January. Sri Lanka, who recently smashed Zimbabwe 5-0, are the third side in the series.
Zimbabwe Cricket has assembled two teams for the camp, with the seniors under the guidance of Walter Chawaguta and a separate Zimbabwe A side coached by Stephen Mangongo. The two sides will take each other on in four one-day matches at the Harare Sports Club, from which the selectors will base their decision on who will tour Bangladesh.
In an interview with Chronicle Sports yesterday, Chawaguta said training was going well and if any of the players from Zimbabwe A impressed, they would graduate to the national team.
"These are not trials…but it's the national team in practice with the Zimbabwe A and if anyone from Zimbabwe A plays extremely well they will make it to the national team," he said. "We played one game on Monday and we were supposed to play another one yesterday [Tuesday] but it was rain-washed. Today's [Wednesday's] game has also been rain-washed."
Zimbabwe A beat the seniors by five runs on Monday and another match is scheduled for today.
