Wicketkeeper-batsman Regis Chakabwa has been named Zimbabwe’s captain for the upcoming ODI series against Bangladesh, in which regular captain Craig Ervine has been ruled out due to a hamstring and knee injury. All-rounder Sean Williams will also miss the series, with Zimbabwe Cricket saying he was granted leave to “attend some personal matters”. Blessing Mujarbani, who missed the T20I series against Bangladesh due to injury, is still unavailable.
Zimbabwe have also brought in fast bowler Brad Evans in place of the injured Tendai Chatra. Evans has yet to play an ODI but was impressive in Zimbabwe’s victory in the third T20I, taking two wickets to obstruct Bangladesh’s chase.

Meanwhile, Munyonga is yet to make his ODI debut.

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.”

While they have lost their last two ODI series against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in January and June respectively this year, Zimbabwe is on a roll in T20Is. They have won seven of their last eight T20Is, including an unbeaten qualification campaign that has secured them a spot in the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia. They then beat Bangladesh 2–1 in last week’s T20I series – the first time Zimbabwe has won a T20I series against Bangladesh.

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.
