Zimbabwe have included left-arm spinner Wellington Masakadza in their side for the upcoming five-match ODI series and one-off Test match against Sri Lanka.

Masakadza has not played an ODI since December 2015, while he has yet to make his Test debut.

Masakadza was the only player to be added to the ODI side, but he was one of four changes made to the Test team as Regis Chakabva, Carl Mumba and uncapped all-rounder Nathan Waller were drafted into the squad.

With the quartet coming in, Solomon Mire, Richard Ngarava and Chamu Chibhabha were dropped.

This will be Zimbabwe’s first tour of Sri Lanka since they travelled to the country for a three-Test series back in December 2001 to January 2002.

The five-match ODI series will get underway in Galle on Friday, while the lone Test match will be held in Colombo on Colombo on July 14.

Zimbabwe’s ODI squad: Solomon Mire, Hamilton Masakadza, Ryan Burl, Graeme Cremer (capt), Craig Ervine, Sean Williams Peter Moor (wk) Sikandar Raza, Tendai Chatara, Chris Mpofu, Donald Tiripano, Richard Ngarava, Wellington Masakadza, Malcolm Waller, Chamu Chibhabha, Tarisai Musakanda
