Summary

  • Former captain Graeme Cremer will miss Zimbabwe’s tours to South Africa and Bangladesh scheduled for September-November after he recently underwent successful knee surgery in Harare.
  • Cremer was in camp with the training squad that is preparing for the limited-overs and Test series away to South Africa and Bangladesh when his troublesome knee flared up.
  • However, Zimbabwe have received a major boost ahead of the tours with the return to action of all-rounder Solomon Mire and fast bowler Kyle Jarvis who both missed the one-day international (ODI) series at home to Pakistan in July due to injury.
  • Ruled out of action for at least six weeks after fracturing his right thumb while fielding during the T20I triangular series, Jarvis has now joined the training camp and is working to regain full fitness.
  • He has not played a single competitive match since he shattered his right knee in Zimbabwe’s ODI against Sri Lanka in Hambantota in July last year, but the pace bowler has been part of the training squad in camp for the past month.
