Dabengwa and Matsikenyeri called up
Following the 202-run loss to the visiting Pakistan Cricket Academy side, Zimbabwe have made six changes to their Board XI line-up for the second four-day game at the Harare Sports Club.
Stuart Matsikenyeri and Keith Dabengwa, two national team players, have been drafted into the XI. Dabengwa, a spin-bowling allrounder, will lead the side, replacing Erick Chauluka, who will be 12th man.
"We just want to give the team a little bit of experience which they lacked in the first match," convener of selectors Kenyon Ziehl told the Zimbabwe Independent. "We hope the experience of Stuart and Keith will rub on to the younger guys. We are also lengthening the batting order which was weak in the first game. Keith will also bring experienced captaincy to the side."
The other additions to the XI are opening batsman Friday Kasteni, who was 12th man in the first game, Prince Masvaure, Zimbabwe's captain at the under-19 World Cup, and fast bowlers Tendai Chisoro and Michael Chinouya.
