PROSPER UTSEYA

Prosper Utseya
Age 21, Right-arm off-spin, right-handed batsman
Took over the captaincy in the summer of 2006 for the series against Bangladesh which his team edged 3-2.

Hit five fours in 31 against Sri Lanka in the 2004 Champions Trophy but has yet to better that with the bat at one-day international level.

Better known for his subtle flighted off-spin, which yielded 3-35 against the West Indies in Antigua.

CHAMU CHIBHABHA

Chamu Chibhabha
Age 20, right-handed batsman, right-arm seamer
After a third-ball duck on his debut against India, he made his mark with successive fifties in the West Indies.

Also took 2-39 on that trip but suffered a back injury that has hampered his progress as a seam bowler since.

Was dismissed for only one against the Windies in the recent Champions Trophy, while in the home series against Bangladesh that followed he made several starts without recording a half-century.

SEAN WILLIAMS

Sean Williams
Age 20, left-handed batsman, slow left-arm spin
One of the most promising of Zimbabwe's group of young players, who led the U-19 side to victory over England in the U-19 World Cup.

Had played only one first-class match when he was selected for the main squad to tour South Africa, where he scored an unbeaten 33 in match two of the series.

His father, a former first-class player, was unhappy about his son neglecting his studies to play for Zimbabwe and Williams jnr initially rejected the offer of a central contract, only to have a change of heart and play against Bangladesh, firing successive scores in the 60s.
