Cremer named Zimbabwe captain for test return
HARARE: Zimbabwe have named Graeme Cremer as chief of a 16-man squad named on Thursday for the two-test arrangement against New Zealand beginning one week from now.

The primary test starts next Thursday and the second on Aug. 6. It will be the principal test at the Queens Sports Club in very nearly five years since New Zealand won a coincidental match there by 34 keeps running in November 2011.
New Zealand play Zimbabwe An in a three-day hone match at the Harare Sports Club on Friday before traveling to Bulawayo.
