Harare - Zimbabwe have recalled batsman Mark Vermeulen to their cricket squad six years after he was cleared of arson on psychiatric grounds after setting fire to the national union's headquarters and an academy building.
Vermeulen was cleared in a court in 2008 despite admitting setting fire two years earlier to the union offices at Harare Sports Club and an academy pavilion at another location.
He was cleared after arguing he was suffering from problems related to epilepsy caused by being hit on the head by a ball during a game.
The 35-year-old Vermeulen's recall Monday came after he recently made a century for Zimbabwe A against Afghanistan.
He was part of a 25-man squad named by new coach Stephen Mangongo for tours by South Africa and Australia this month.
