ZC Bans Madhevere and Mavuta

Wessly Madhevere and Brandon Mavuta have been fined 50% of their salaries for three months with effect from January 2024.

Batter Kevin Kasuza who played the last of his seven Tests in 2021, has also been suspended from all cricket activities after he tested positive for the usage of drugs.

During the dope test, the allrounders were tested positive for drug usage and the sanctions were given after the hearing last Wednesday when they admitted the charges of “breaching the ZC Employment Code of Conduct.”

They have been sentenced to attend a rehabilitation process which will be overseen by the Zimbabwe Cricket Board’s medical team.

“In taking the decision, the Committee also considered some mitigating factors, with both players showing remorse and having already started working on withdrawing from the habit and getting their systems clean,” ZC said in a statement.

Both the players were part of the squad which played in Ireland’s tour of Zimbabwe in December.

Madhevere played in all T20Is while Mavuta played in both ODI and T20I series. After that Madhevere featured for Mashonaland Eagles in the ongoing Logan Cup.

Recently Zimbabwe concluded a three-match ODI and T20I series on Sri Lanka where Sri Lanka won both series.
