[Zimbabwe], Feb. 15 (ANI): Uncapped left-arm pacer Richard Ngarava and Carl Mumba have been included in the 16-member squad for the upcoming ODI series at home against Afghanistan in Harare, beginning on Thursday.

Ngarava (19), who impressed at the 2016 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh, only made his List A debut for Zimbabwe A against Afghanistan A earlier this month before his bow for Manicaland Mountaineers in the provincial one-day competition, the Pro50 Championship, this past weekend.

On the other hand, 21-year-old Mumba earned his maiden Test and ODI caps last year when Sri Lanka visited the country, reports ESPNcricinfo.

Zimbabwe had last week named a 14-man squad, with the selectors leaving room for two more players until after the Pro50 Championship matches.

The five ODIs will be played on February 16, 19, 21, 24 and 26, all at the Harare Sports Club.
