Former Free State Stars and Black Leopards coach Sunday Chidzambwa, who is currently coaching Zimbabwe, has included Chiefs’ Khama Billiat and Teenage Hadebe, as well as Marshall Munetsi and Kudakwashe Mahachi in his squad.

However, Hadebe is yet to make an appearance for Amakhosi in the new campaign due to the ankle injury he has been struggling with.
In total, 12 Mzansi-based Zimbabwean players (10 from the PSL and two from NFD) have been named in Chidzambwa’s squad. Furthermore, former Chiefs and Downs stars, Knowledge Musona and Nyasha Mushekwi, have been named in the strong squad.
