Zimbabwe speedster Tinashe Panyangara will not be a part of the squad which will take on India in the upcoming limited overs series due to a back injury.

Panyangara took part in the training camp held in Bulawayo but he suffered from bouts of back pain and was advised by the team physio Anesu Mupotaringa to consult a neurologist.

Zimbabwe have named two 18-man squad for the One-Day Internationals and the Twenty20 Internationals with Graeme Cremer leading the side.

Hamilton Masakadza has retained his place in the side even though he was recently removed as captain following a review into Zimbabwe’s performance in the World Twenty20.

In the place of the injured Panyangara, Zimbabwe have opted to pick Taurai Muzarabani while the likes of Luke Jongwe and Malcolm Waller miss out on selection for the ODIs.

Chamu Chibhabha and Tawanda Mupariwa missed out on selection for the T20Is whereas Luke Jongwe makes a comeback into the shorter format after missing out the World T20 due to injury.

Apart from Cremer’s leg-spin, Wellington Masakadza and Tendai Chisoro will be the left arm spin options in both the squads along with Timycen Maruma, who last played for Zimbabwe in the year 2014.

Vusi Sibanda, Sikandar Raza, Elton Chigumbura and Sean Williams will form the core of the batting line up in both the squads whereas Chamu Chibhabha and Malcolm Waller were selected only for the ODIs and T20Is respectively.

The three-match ODI series will be played between 11th and 15th June while the three T20Is will be held between 19th and 22nd June in Harare.
