New Delhi: Zimbabwe have reinstated Brendan Taylor as captain and recalled veteran spinner Ray Price for the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in September.
The 15-member squad announced on Friday includes just one new face in the form of 21-year-old medium-pacer Richard Muzhange, while Brian Vitori is the only player in the squad yet to play a Twenty20 international.
Stuart Matsekenyeri, Elton Chigumbara and Hamilton Masakadza will share the bulk of the run-scoring responsibility, with Chris Mpofu leading the pace attack.
"This is one of the hardest squads we've had to pick for a while because we had quite a few players competing for places. Most of these guys are the ones that played against South Africa and Bangladesh in the tri-series. They did well there and we hope they will do well at the World Twenty20," Zimbabwe bowling coach Heath Streak was quoted as saying.
Zimbabwe have been grouped along with South Africa and hosts Sri Lanka in Group C and will open their campaign in Hambantota against Sri Lanka on September 18.
Squad: Brendan Taylor (capt), Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbura, Craig Ervine, Graeme Cremer, Ray Price, Kyle Jarvis, Chris Mpofu, Richard Muzhange, Brian Vitori, Prosper Utseya, Forster Mutizwa
Reserves: Regis Chakabva, Tendai Chatara, Shingirai Masakadza, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Richmond Mutumbami
