MUTARE- Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) yesterday suspended Mountaineers and national team wicket batsman Kevin Kasuza (30) after he tested positive for a banned recreational drug.
The Dangamvura born Kasuza who has been in the national team since January 2020 is set to appear for a disciplinary hearing.
A ZC letter seen by Chipinge Times and signed by ZC Media and Communications Officer Darlington Majonga said the ban is with immediate effect.
It also states that Kasuza tested positive for the drug during an in-house doping test last week.
