Chatara is to be replaced by Test debutants due to a failed recovery of his bicep injury.
Zimbabwe’s fast-bowler, Tendai Chatara has been ruled out of the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka due to a bicep injury sustained during a domestic match. Chatara’s last Test match was against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur back in November 2018.
His absence from the upcoming Test series gives way to the uncapped pacers such as Victor Nyauchi and Charlton Tshuma to make their Test debut. Kevin Kasuza, Brian Mudzinganyama, and left-arm spinner Ainsley Ndlovu are the other three uncapped players in the 15-member squad.
The 1st Test of Sri Lanka tour of Zimbabwe will take place at Harare Sports Club on January 19-23, while the 2nd Test will resume on January 27-31 at the same venue.
Zimbabwe Squad: Sean Williams (c), Sikandar Raza Butt, Regis Chakabva, Craig Ervine, Kyle Jarvis, Kevin Kasuza, Timycen Maruma, Prince Masvaure, Brian Mudzinganyama, Carl Mumba, Ainsley Ndlovu, Victor Nyauchi, Brendan Taylor, Donald Tiripano, Charlton Tshuma
As of now, Sri Lanka is on the lead with the odds of -500, while Zimbabwe with the odds of +380. To keep you updated, check out Betwala’s page on cricket odds.
