Zimbabwe Over-60 have selected former Test and ODI seamer Eddo Brandes for next year’s Over-60 World Cup in India.

Brandes played 10 Tests and 59 ODIs from 1987 to 1999. He took an ODI hat-trick against England in Harer in 1997.

The Over-60 World Cup squad includes several players from Zimbabwe Over-60’s squad for October 2023’s inter-provincial tournament in Johannesburg.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce the names of the players selected for Zimbabwe Over-60,” read a statement from Zimbabwe Masters Cricket Association selector Sanjay Patel.

“This is the final squad, barring injuries. It is made up of all current available players based in Zimbabwe, South Africa, United Kingdom, Canada,  Australia and New Zealand.

“The squad still has to be approved by Zimbabwe Cricket. It is very similar to the squad that played in Johannesburg recently.”

The 14-team Over-60 World Cup will be played in Chennai from 18 February to 3 March 2024.
