The tour will be overseen by Zimbabwe Cricket's selection convener Tatenda Taibu and coach Stuart Matsikenyeri, and Taibu hoped the challenging games on tour would help the players grow further in the future.

While left-handed batsman Burl - who has an average of above 40 in both first class and List A cricket - and left-arm pacer Ngarava made their ODI debut in the first match against Afghanistan, Carl Mumba and Tarisai Musakanda have been part of the international set up since Sri Lanka's tour of Zimbabwe in October 2016. Mumba is the most experienced of the four, having played two Tests and one ODI, taking 8 wickets in his short international career.
