New Zimbabwe national team coach Klaus Pagels has axed AmaZulu goalkeeper and captain Tapiwa Kapini and Mamelodi Sundowns' Esrom Nyandoro from the squad to face Botswana at Rufaro next Wednesday.

There is also no space for Sundowns' striker Nyasha Mushekwi who was cleared of match-fixing allegations while Kapini's teammate Carlington Nyadombo was also dropped, together with Kaizer Chiefs' Willard Katsande.

Nyandoro and Mushekwi are currently in Zimbabwe on a tour with Sundowns and play Caps United in Harare on Friday and Dynamos on Sunday.

Moroka Swallows right wing back Gilbert Mapemba is back after paying off his Asiagate fine as is Lincoln Zvasiya and Black Leopards striker Brian Abbas Amidu.

The Kaizer Chiefs pair of Lincoln Zvasiya and Mathew Rusike have been called-up with new Denver Mukamba, Rodreck Mutuma and Simba Sithole, who recently completed moves to Bidvest Wits, Bloemfontein Celtic and SuperSport United respectively.

Tafadzwa Rusike, who has also paid his Asiagate fine, returns to the team with Khama Billiat, who was a member of last year's failed Africa Cup of Nations bid.

Wits goalkeeper Washington Arubi is now likely to be handed the captain's armband for the match.

Warriors' manager Shariff Mussa said the players will assemble in Harare on Sunday, adding they will only talk about the dropped players after the match.

The Zimbabwe squad:

Goalkeepers: Washington Arubi (Pretoria University, SA), Artwell Mukandi (Dynamos), Maxwell Nyamupanedengu (Harare City)

Defenders: Gilbert Mapemba (Moroka Swallows, SA), Lincoln Zvasiya (Kaizer Chiefs, SA), Nicholas Guyo (Monomotapa), Partson Jaure, Ocean Mushure (Dynamos),

Midfielders: Denver Mukamba (Bidvest Wits University, SA), Tafadzwa Rusike, Khama Billiat ((Ajax Cape Town, SA), Mathew Rusike (Kaizer Chief, SA), Archford Gutu (Kalmar FC, Sweden), Quincy Antipas (Brondby, Belgium), Hardlife Zvirekwi (Caps United), Ronald Chitiyo (Monomotapa), Peter Moyo, Masimba Mambare (Highlanders)

Strikers: Knowledge Musona (Augsburg, Germany), Abbas Amidu (Black Leopards, SA), Rodreck Mutuma (Bloemfontein Celtic, SA), Simba Sithole (SuperSport United, SA), Silas Songani (Harare City).
