NEW ZEALAND ON FOR A TWO TEST MATCH SERIES AGAINST ZIMBABWE.

NEW ZEALAND ON FOR A TWO TEST MATCH SERIES AGAINST ZIMBABWE.

New Zealand's Test squad landed in  Zimbabwe on Wednesday for a two-match series, finishing the qualm over the tour that had aroused  in the limelight of omnipresent demurral in Zimbabwe over civil and economic problem of the country.

The New Zealand batsmen sparked it up by winning the practice match, with 4 batsmen hitting a well deserved half century for their side. It will be very interesting to see as of how the Zimbabwe team will come up with their plans to perform better and start  the series with confidence and come up with best possible plans for the kiwis.

Zimbabwe introduced Prince Masvaure who is  named in Zimbabwe's Test squad to face New Zealand

 

Tom Latham, New Zealand's Test opener, said "It's nice to finally be here. We had a good tour here last year, so I'm sure it will be much the same, "It was a good week of preparation for us in South Africa.

"It was good to catch up with the guys. We want to win every game, like we do on most tours. It's nice to have everyone back, everyone is fully fit. We'll get the warm-up game out of the way and then focus on the two Tests."

The Test squad of both the teams are as follows-:

ZIMBABWE-: Graeme Cremer (c), Sikandar Raza Butt, Regis Chakabva, Brian Chari, Tendai Chatara, Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Hamilton Masakadza, Prince Masvaure, Tinotenda Mawoyo, Peter Joseph Moor, Richmond Mutumbami, Taurai Muzarabani, Njabulo Ncube, Donald Tiripano, Sean Williams.

NEW ZEALAND-: Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Mark Craig, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Henry Nicholls, Luke Ronchi (wk), Jeet Raval, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling (wk)
