Zimbabwe Drop Sikandar Raza For Tri-Nation Series
Zimbabwe drops Sikandar Raza from the 15-man squad for disciplinary reasons in the next Tri-nation 2019 series in Bangladesh. In addition to Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, Afghanistan will participate in the Tri-nation series 2019.

Apart from Raza, Zimbabwe has appointed a strong team. The team includes Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, and Christopher Mpofu. Tony Munyonga, Ainsley Ndlovu, Ryan Burl, Tinotenda Mutombodzi and Neville Madziva are also part of the team.
Zimbabwe’s cricket, however, made it clear that they wanted to support the captain and had, therefore, decided not to choose Raza. Walter Chawaguta, Zimbabwe’s head of selectors, said it was essential to drop Raza to ensure the captain gets the full support of all the players.
“It is important that we support our captain, whether it is Masakadza or anyone else, by creating an environment in which we can be sure that he will have the full support of all the players, each pulling in the same direction and able to trust. Other. That’s why we decided to leave Raza out,” Chawaguta said.
Masakadza will drop the curtains on his career after the series. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe remains suspended by the ICC for “political interference. They are already banned from competing in next month’s T20 World Cup qualifier. Head coach Lalchand Rajput said his team is preparing for the future.
“We are now focusing on rebuilding a new team. To do this, we must gradually build up young players and create a new culture that encourages unity, hard work, professionalism, and excellence,” Rajput said. “We will not make any wholesale changes, as we certainly still need experienced players to help the new generation find their place in international cricket.
