Harare, Jan 8 (MNN) Veteran batter Craig Ervine has been retained as captain for Zimbabwe’s three-match one-day international series in Sri Lanka.

The ODI games — part of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League — will be day-night affairs and scheduled for January 16, 18 and 21 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy.

Ervine has been entrusted with the responsibility to lead Zimbabwe once again after he captained the team for the limited-overs tour to Ireland and Scotland in August-September last year.

In Sri Lanka, he will lead a 15-man squad that includes the uncapped duo of opening batter Takudzwanashe Kaitano and wicketkeeper Clive Madande, while all-rounder Tino Mutombodzi has returned to the national side.

Zimbabwe squad: Ervine Craig (captain), Burl Ryan, Chakabva Regis, Chatara Tendai, Jongwe Luke, Kaitano Takudzwanashe, Madande Clive, Madhevere Wessly, Masakadza Wellington, Mutombodzi Tinotenda, Muzarabani Blessing, Ngarava Richard, Raza Sikandar, Shumba Milton, Williams Sean
