Sean Williams remains unpicked for selection as preparations for the ICC World Cup Qualifier to be held in Zimbabwe step up..

Malcolm Waller, Zimbabwe’s third highest run-scorer at ODI level since February 2018 is in the squad after having missed out on the historic boxing day test.

In the tri-series, Zimbabwe will play Bangladesh in the first match on 15 January, before Heath Streak’s charges face Sri Lanka two days later.

After taking on Sri Lanka again on 21 January, Zimbabwe will have a day’s rest before entertaining Bangladesh for the second time.

The final is scheduled for 27 January.

All matches will be day-night games and will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.
