Zimbabwe have included the uncapped duo of Brandon Mavuta and Ryan Murray in their squad for the triangular series in Bangladesh, involving the hosts and Sri Lanka.

Apart from the two former Zimbabwe Under-19 stars, Blessing Muzarabani – who made his Test debut for Zimbabwe against South Africa on Boxing Day – is also in line to get his first one-day international cap after he was included in the 15-man squad.

Proteas captain, Faf du Plessis, has been ruled out of the day-night Sunfoil Test match against Zimbabwe starting at St George’s Park on Tuesday. Du Plessis developed a viral infection this week, which delayed his return to full fitness following lower back and shoulder injuries.

AB de Villiers has been appointed as the stand-in captain for the one-off match.

Proteas batsman, AB de Villiers, says he is geared up for the unique challenges the pink ball will pose in the historic four-day day-night Test match against Zimbabwe starting in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday, December 26th. The Proteas held their first session under lights with the pink ball on Friday evening, with the St George’s Park conditions providing plenty of nip and spice for the bowlers.

The 33-year-old says he is ‘excited’ to make a return to the Test fold after nearly two years, and hopes to make a meaningful contribution on and off the field as one of the senior players in the squad. He has recovered from the stiff lower back that kept him out of the three-day warm-up match against Zimbabwe earlier this week, and is fit and eager to take on the uncharted pink ball challenge.

Hamilton Masakadza spared Zimbabwe’s blushes on Wednesday with a well-crafted fifty as the tourists struggled to cope with unfamiliar settings on the opening day of their three-day warm-up match against the South Africa Invitation XI at Boland Park in Paarl.

Playing under lights and using the pink ball for the first time, Zimbabwe folded for 196, with Masakadza’s knock of 79 – which came off 181 deliveries and included nine boundaries and a single maximum – being the only noteworthy performance of the innings.

So far it has been a case of living by the sword, dying by the sword in this first Test between Zimbabwe and the Windies at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. After Zimbabwe had deployed spin bowling so effectively to bundle out the Caribbean side for 219 on the first day – with captain Graeme Cremer leading the charge with a four-wicket haul – the visitors simply returned the favour on Sunday, skittling the home side for 159 just before tea.

Legspinner Devendra Bishoo was the chief tormentor, claiming five wickets, while there were two each for the captain Jason Holder and Kemar Roach.
