Chakabwa, who made his Zimbabwe debut in 2008, will be leading the team for the first time.
“It’s an honor I’ll definitely cherish,” Chakabwa said. “I’m a quiet, calm guy so I’ll try to be myself as I always have. It’s a little unfortunate to lose Craig, from whom I’ve learned so much. I don’t think I’ll do anything different from my normal character. I rally people I’ll try to.”
Chakabwa said that ODIs would be a different possibility. “Bangladesh are a strong side. We are playing some good cricket. We expect a good challenge with these guys. We look forward to playing like that. The results will come from that.”
“Obviously, ODIs are a different challenge. You have to play well for a long time. It won’t be T20 in a one-day game. We want to play positive cricket for a long time. Points or no points, it’s still an issue for us. Big series. We are expecting it to be as challenging as possible. Next we have India and Australia, so either way, it’s just a preparation for us to lead those series.”
The first ODI will be played on August 5, the second and third on August 7 and 10 respectively. All three matches will be played in Harare.
