Lamb and Waller in Zimbabwe Test squad

ESPNcricinfo staff

Zimbabwe have included allrounders Malcolm Waller and Greg Lamb in their 15-man squad for the lone Test against Pakistan which starts on Thursday. Injured medium-pacer Keegan Meth and allrounder Elton Chigumbura, who picked up a knee injury on match eve, are the only absentees from the squad which memorably beat Bangladesh earlier this month in Zimbabwe's return to Tests after six years. Chamu Chibhabha was drafted into the side in place of Chigumbura.

Lamb, 30, has played 14 one-dayers for Zimbabwe since his debut last year. He makes it to the Test pool after taking three wickets, including that of the experienced pair of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan, in the tour match against the Pakistanis and following that up with a solid 40.

Waller also had a decent outing against the Pakistanis, taking two tail-end wickets before making a brisk 32. He returned to the Zimbabwe set-up for the one-dayers against Bangladesh, after being sidelined for more than 20 months. He was also the fourth-highest run-getter last season in the Castle Logan Cup, Zimbabwe's domestic first-class competition.

Squad: Brendan Taylor (capt), Regis Chakabva, Chamu Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Kyle Jarvis, Hamilton Masakadza, Tino Mawoyo, Chris Mpofu, Ray Price, Vusi Sibanda, Tatenda Taibu (wk), Prosper Utseya, Brian Vitori, Malcolm Waller, Greg Lamb

    Hope Zim will carry on the good work from BD series. However, it is altogether a different proposition playing Pak who have been playing good cricket in the past 1 yr under Waqar and Misbah unlike faltering Bangladesh.
