BATSMAN Mark Vermeulen, whose career has been troubled by off-field incidents, has been picked in Zimbabwe's A squad for the tour to Bangladesh.

Zimbabwe A are scheduled to play two four-day and three one-day games during the trip, but the final schedule will be announced at a later date.

Vermeulen, who has played eight Tests and 43 ODIs in the past, was the second-highest run-getter in the first-class season, scoring 580 runs at an average of 64.44 with one century and four fifties.

Regis Chakabva, who scored the most first-class runs has also been named in the squad along with pacer Donald Tiripano and offspinner John Nyumbu, the leading wicket-takers in the 2013-14 first-class season.

Chakabva, along with Shingi Masakadza, Tino Mawoyo and Malcolm Waller, were a part of the squad in Zimbabwe's previous Test, against Pakistan in September 2013.

Vermeulen, however, is one of the five players who will return after the four-dayers. A group of five players, including Sikandar Raza, who are being groomed as 50-over specialists will join the team in Bangladesh.

The squad will prepare for the tour with a camp in Harare, which will include a two-day game and two one-dayers. The team will depart for Bangladesh on June 28.

Zimbabwe A squad: Regis Chakabva, Brian Chari, Michael Chinouya, Luke Jongwe, Roy Kaia, Timycen Maruma, Shingi Masakadza, Tinotenda Mawoyo, Brighton Mugochi, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Raymond Mutumbami, John Nyumbu, Donald Tiripano, Mark Vermeulen, Malcolm Waller

Additions for one-dayers: Sikandar Raza (for Mark Vermeulen), Joylord Gumbie (for Roy Kaia), Tafadzwa Kamungozi (for John Nyumbu), Neville Madziva (for Michael Chinouya), Forster Mutizwa (for Malcolm Waller)
