HARARE: Former Zimbabwe cricket captain Tatenda Taibu looks set for a return to the beleaguered national side after resuming training with his teammates, two years on from his fallout with the management.

While Taibu himself has refused to comment Givemore Makoni, team manager for the Zimbabwe Cricket Union, said the diminutive wicketkeeper had opened talks with administrators.

“There are talks going on between him and Zimbabwe Cricket in a bid to try and get him back,” Makoni said. “I think he wants to play. I can’t disclose much, but at the moment he is with us to try and maintain form. He is also in camp and he is training. Negotiations are still in progress at the moment,” he said. Makoni would not give details of the negotiations. — AFP
