There was no big surprise in the announcement and the regular names which feature in Zimbabwe team have been trusted to play the world cup 2015 as well.
Elton Chigumbura has been successful in retaining his captaincy despite of a discouraging series against Bangladesh where they lost all the 5 ODIs towards the end of 2014. A shocking inclusion was Prosper Utseya who was banned by the ICC for bowling with an illegal bowling action in the ODIs and required to undergo a changed action, go through a revised action. There has been no clarity of him going through the mandatory bowling action test as well.
The squad will be coached by Dav Whatmore for the world cup who has been appointed as the coach for the big tournament. Whatmore has had good international tenures as coach though he cannot change the fortune hugely but surely can ensure the Zimbabwe save some pride in this world cup.
