ZIMBABWE Chevrons captain Sean Williams has been ruled out of the second T20I against Pakistan through injury.

Brendan Taylor replaced him as captain today (Friday) Harare Sports Club.

“The team’s medical unit recommended that he be rested as a precautionary measure aimed at getting him fully fit ahead of the more demanding Test series against the same opponents,” Zimbabwe Cricket said.

“In Williams’ absence, Brendan Taylor – who missed the first game due to illness – has been named as Zimbabwe’s stand-in captain for today’s T20I after he was passed fit to play.

“Tarisai Musakanda has also come in for the injured Craig Ervine in the only other change to the side that played the first game on Wednesday.”

Zimbabwe lost the first T20I by 11-runs and they are seeking to level the series.
