Chigumbura to miss key match against Ireland

HOBART: Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura who sustained leg injury now he won’t play in the tie against Ireland on Saturday at Bellerive Oval.

The skipper sustained a muscle tear in his quadriceps while fielding in a match against Pakistan when he attempted to cut off a boundary in the outfield.

However, Zimbabwe lost the match by 20 runs

Zimbabwe team manager Christian Chiketa issued a statement Wednesday saying medical staff were working hard to get Chigumbura ready for the following match against India on March 14.

Zimbabwe, in fifth place in the seven-team Pool B, will likely have to win both its remaining matches to qualify for the quarterfinals.
