Allrounder Julia Chibhabha, sister of Zimbabwe batsman Chamu Chibhabha, returns to the national squad for the Women's World Cup Regional Qualifiers to be held in Kenya in December. The tournament will include the hosts and Zimbabwe along with Uganda, South Africa and Tanzania.

"There have been no major changes in the line-up, apart from the return of Julia Chibhabha into the squad," Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) Women's Cricket Coordinator, Caroline Nyamande, said. "The franchises have done well working with the players, the ladies have played more cricket in the last eight months and selectors had a tougher time choosing the squad not only because of increased number of candidates but the swell of competitive players."

ZC introduced the country's first inter-franchise women's age-group competitions in March, starting with the Under-13 category to the senior levels.

Squad: Sinikiwe Mpofu, Nonhlanhla Nyathi, Ashley Burdett, Chipo Mugeri, Pellagia Mujaji, Julia Chibhabha, Christabel Chatonzwa, Monalisa Chimutashu, Sharyce Saili, Nyasha Gauzeni, Precious Marange, Ashley Ndiraya, Sarah Dambanevana, Thandolwenkosi Mlilo, Sharne Mayers.
