ZC bans Madhevere & Mavuta

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has banned national team players Wessly Madhevere and Brandon Mavuta from cricket for four months for recreational drug use.

Wessly Madhevere


The two received the sanction after admitting – when they appeared for a disciplinary hearing last Wednesday – to charges of breaching the ZC Employment Code of Conduct that arose when they tested positive for a banned recreational drug during an in-house doping test in December.

On top of the ban, Madhevere and Mavuta have been fined 50 percent of their salaries for three months, with effect from January 2024, while they also received final written warnings valid for 12 months.

Meanwhile, ZC has with immediate effect suspended another national team player, Kevin Kasuza, from all cricket activities, pending a hearing, after he tested positive for a banned drug during an in-house doping test last week.

He is due to appear for a disciplinary hearing soon.
