Tawanda Mupariwa, who twisted his ankle as he and Brendan Taylor guided Zimbabwe to dramatic victory in the third ODI on Wednesday, will now miss the remaining matches on Friday and Sunday.

Mupariwa fell and was run-out as he turned after being sent back by Brendan Taylor while going for a run in the thrilling last over of the match. He was yaken to hospital and it is reported that he fractured his foot.

Waddington Mwayenga, who trained with the squad in the Harare Sports Club nets on Thursday afternoon, may now be given a chance even though he was not expected to play any part in the series.

Zimbabwe did receive a boost with news that Ed Rainsford, who with Mupariwa began the five-match series as Zimbabwe's opening attack, was passed fit to play in the remaining matches after missing Wednesday's game.
