The planned tour to India next month looks to have fallen through and the team have no fixtures planned before July.

Masakadza’s appointment was for the 2019/20 season, with Peter Moor named as his vice-captain, Zimbabwe Cricket said in a statement.

The 35-year-old Masakadza has extensive experience of leading Zimbabwe, having captained in three tests, 20 One-Day Internationals and 11 Twenty20s.

He skippered the side late last year on tour to South Africa and Bangladesh when captain Graeme Cremer was forced out after knee surgery. Cremer has since put his cricket career on hold for family reasons. (Reuters/NAN)
