Zimbabwe have named a 15-man squad for the two-match Twenty20 International series against New Zealand which begins with the opening game on 15th October.

Brendan Taylor will continue to lead the squad for the matches in Harare as they look to build on a series of encouraging performances against Pakistan and Bangladesh since their return to Test cricket.

2011 World Cup semi-finalists New Zealand are expected to offer the home team a sterner test, however, and the squad named includes a blend of youth and experience with leg-spinner Natsai Mushangwe the only uncapped member.

Prosper Utseya, Malcolm Waller and Ray Price are the other spinners in the squad.

The second match is on 17th October before New Zealand also play three One-Day Internationals and a Test match.

Zimbabwe T20I squad: Brendan Taylor (captain), Charles Coventry, Chamu Chibhabha, Elton Chigumbura, Kyle Jarvis, Hamilton Masakadza, Keegan Meth, Chris Mpofu, Natsai Mushangwe, Forster Mutizwa, Ray Price, Vusi Sibanda, Tatenda Taibu, Prosper Utseya, Malcolm Waller
