Uncapped starlet Richard Ngarava has been included in Zimbabwe’s squad for the five-match one-day international series against Afghanistan in Harare, starting this Thursday.

The 19-year-old left-arm seamer, who impressed at the 2016 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh, only made his List A debut for Zimbabwe A against Afghanistan A earlier this month before his bow for Manicaland Mountaineers in the provincial one-day competition, the Pro50 Championship, this past weekend.

Twenty-one-year-old pace bowler Carl Mumba, who received his first Test and ODI caps for Zimbabwe in October/November last year, has also been added to the final squad for the ODI series against Afghanistan.

Zimbabwe had last week named a 14-man squad, with the selectors leaving room for two more players until after the Pro50 Championship matches.

Zimbabwe: Graeme Cremer (captain), Peter Joseph Moor (wicketkeeper), Ryan Burl, Tarisai Musakanda, Sikandar Raza, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbura, Wellington Masakadza, Donald Tiripano, Tendai Chatara, Christopher Mpofu, Nathan Waller, Craig Ervine, Solomom Mire, Carl Mumba, Richard Ngarava
