Gary Brent, Zimbabwe's medium-fast bowler, completes his international comeback by replacing Terry Duffin in Zimbabwe's Champions Trophy squad in India.

Duffin, who has missed Zimbabwe's first two matches against the West Indies and Sri Lanka due to illness, has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament.

Brent, 30, is flying to India on Wednesday to join up with his new team-mates in time for Zimbabwe's final preliminary match with Bangladesh on Friday. He was part of the 15 rebel white players whose dispute with Zimbabwe Cricket led to the premature ending to their international careers.

Brent, however, recently made himself available again and went on to sign a central contacta fortnight ago. He hit a timely century in club cricket for Harare Sports Club against Takashinga on Sunday.
