Moor to captain Zim development side
THE Zimbabwe Development squad started its second week of preparations today for the forthcoming home series against the Sri Lanka Development.
Douglas Hondo is coaching the side assisted by MidWest Rhinos coach Adam Chifo, with two members of the senior national men’s fitness trainer Sean Bell and physiotherapist Anesu Mupotaringa.
Wicketkeeper Peter Joseph Moor captains the side that also includes senior players such as top-order batsman Brian Chari, all-rounder Luke Jongwe and bowlers Neville Madziva and Wellington Masakadza.
As befitting a development side, there are players such as Stephen Chimhamhiwa, Dylan Hondo, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Charles Kunje, Nyasha Mayavo, Carl Mumba and Mkhululi Nyathi, who have shown potential at provincial level in first class and limited overs formats.
The national selectors now want to see them performing at the next level.
The development side will play a four-day match against Sri Lanka Development at Harare Sports Club starting on Sunday followed by three one-day matches on September 3, 5 and 7.
