Injury rules Mawoyo out of World Cup
February 10, 2011
Zimbabwe batsman Tino Mawoyo has been ruled out of the 2011 World Cup due to an abdominal muscle tear, and Terry Duffin has been named his replacement. Mawoyo played two ODIs for Zimbabwe against Bangladesh in 2006 and was himself a replacement for allrounder Sean Ervine, who opted out of the tournament due to personal reasons.
Duffin, 28, has played two Tests and 23 ODIs for Zimbabwe. In the 50-over format, Duffin has three half-centuries and an average of 23.73. He last played an ODI for Zimbabwe in 2007 and represents Matabeleland Tuskers on the country's domestic circuit. Duffin had a reasonably successful MetBank Pro40 tournament during the domestic season, scoring 188 runs in seven games at 37.60.
Mawoyo is the seventh player to be ruled out of the 2011 World Cup after the squads were announced. Ervine, Nathan Hauritz, Michael Hussey, Praveen Kumar, Eoin Morgan and Sohail Tanvir are the others who've had to drop out.
