Zim Under-19 make two changes

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Under-19 cricket team have made two forced changes for today’s one day match against the visiting Namibia Under-19 side at Old Hararians Sports Club.

The three-match series is evenly poised at 1-1 after the hosts won the first game on Sunday by one wicket while Namibia roared back with a 40-run victory in the second match on Monday.

Zimbabwe will be without middle order batsman Sean Synder and Adam Keefe, who have returned to school at Falcon College in Esigodini.

The two had mixed fortunes in the two innings they batted so far during the series. Synder scored 45 runs in the first match before going on to make a low score of 10 in Monday’s loss.

Keefe struggled in the first match as he could only get five runs on the board before going on to make amends with a half century in the second match.

The Zimbabwe Under-19 management have brought in Sydney Murombo from Chiredzi, who did not feature in the first two matches, to replace Synder.

Opener Taufail Zaheer, who struggled and scored five runs in the first match, has been recalled to the starting XI to replace Keefe.

The Pakistan-born 17-year-old will have to contend with a place in the middle order this time around.

The rest of the team that played in Monday’s match remains unchanged.

Zimbabwe Under-19 team manager Nick Singo said their main concern in today’s match will be top order and their bowling attack.

“We had a discussion with our bowlers after their performance on Monday and we feel they should not have allowed Namibia to reach such a huge total of 252,” Singo told the Daily News yesterday.

“The middle order to the low order has also contributed most of the runs in the first two matches and we hope the top order will come to the party tomorrow (today).”
