Prosper Utseya has been included in Zimbabwe's 15-man squad for the Cricket World Cup 2015 but batsman Vusi Sibanda has been dropped.

Utseya was recently banned from bowling off-spin after his action was reported and tested, but he is able to bowl slow-medium.

Sibanda, meanwhile, pays the penalty for a poor run of form during which he has not hit an ODI half-century since August 2013.

He does make a list of five non-travelling reserves, however and Chamu Chibhabha, who last played an ODI in February 2013, is recalled.

Zimbabwe, with new coach Dav Whatmore taking charge, begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on 15th February.

In Pool A of the competition, they also play United Arab Emirates (18th February), West Indies (24th February), Pakistan (1st March), Ireland (7th March) and India (14th March).

Zimbabwe World Cup squad: Elton Chigumbura (captain), Regis Chakabva, Tendai Chatara, Chamu Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Tafadzwa Kamungozi, Hamilton Masakadza, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Solomon Mire, Tawanda Mupariwa, Tinashe Panyangara, Sikandar Raza, Brendan Taylor, Prosper Utseya, Sean Williams
