Zimbabwe have named a 17-man squad for their three-match One-Day International series against South Africa which begins in Bulawayo on Sunday 17th August.

Nineteen-year-old uncapped all-rounder Luke Jongwe is included in the squad despite only playing eight one-day games in his career to date.

Meanwhile, fellow all-rounder Neville Madziva, 23, has played just 16 one-day games and is also uncapped.

Off-spinner John Nyumbu took five wickets on his Test debut but has yet to be capped at ODI level.

Fast bowler Brian Vitori, who was not named in Zimbabwe's 25-man training squad ahead of the Test match, which South Africa won by nine wickets, returns to the ODI squad.

Elton Chigumbura, re-appointed Zimbabwe's limited overs captain last month, will lead the side as they take on the Proteas on 17th, 19th and 21st August.

Zimbabwe ODI squad: Elton Chigumbura (captain), Luke Jongwe, Tafadzwa Kamungozi, Neville Madziva, Timycen Maruma, Hamilton Masakadza, Shingirai Masakadza, Sikandar Raza, Richmond Mutumbami, John Nyumbu, Tinashe Panyangara, Vusi Sibanda, Brendan Taylor, Prosper Utseya, Brian Vitori, Malcolm Waller, Sean Williams
