Zimbabwe announced their squad after for the ICC World Twenty20 starting March 16 after the players ended their strike over non-payment of dues.

Harare:

Zimbabwe have called up spinner Tafadzwa Kamungozi for the ICC World Twenty20 and finally submitted their squad following a player strike that put the team's participation in doubt.

Kamungozi's inclusion on Friday was the only major surprise from Zimbabwe. The 26-year-old legspinner played the last of his four one-day internationals in 2006 and has no international T20 experience. Brendan Taylor captains the squad for the tournament in Bangladesh starting March 16.

Zimbabwe were given permission to name their 15-man squad late after months of problems over non-payment resulted in players going on strike late last year and the national team not training. Players have now been paid after the struggling Zimbabwe cricket board was given a $3 million loan by the ICC. Hamilton Masakadza is the most experienced batsman alongside skipper Taylor.
