Sikandar Raza Butt will miss the Zimbabwe national cricket team’s T-20 tri-series which will feature Australia and Pakistan next month.
After the T-20 tri-series, Zimbabwe will play Pakistan in a five-match one-day international series in Bulawayo. Raza will be playing at the Canada Global T-20 competition. The interim selection panel led by Walter Chawaguta released a squad for the tri-series which will be split into two groups to play a tri-series that will involve Kenya.
The triangular series will take place at the Old Hararians and Takashinga in the capital. Douglas Hondo has been named the Zimbabwe select coach and will be assisted by Stanley Timoni, who will also double as team manager. The tournament involving Kenya will give Zimbabwe’s interim head coach, Lalchand Rajput an opportunity to assess some of the players before the Twenty20 international (T20I) with Australia and Pakistan.
