Kyle Jarvis will not join in the second Test match series of Zimbabwe due to a lower back injury.

Kyle Jarvis has been ruled out of Zimbabwe’s second Test against Sri Lanka due to his lower back injury sustained during their first match. The Zimbabwe National Cricket Team revealed that a specialist doctor advised Jarvis to take a rest while taking anti-inflammatory medications and to start taking physiotherapy sessions as soon as the pain receded. An MRI scan also revealed that the pacer suffers from a disc bulge which limits his movements due to lower back pain, muscle spasms, and stiffness.   

‘The only addition to the squad is Mutombodzi, a good bowler whose batting ability will also be a massive boost for us’, David Mutendera stated, the convenor of selectors. Jarvis, who first bowled is replaced by Tinotenda Mutombodzi, while Kevin Kasuza will be the opening batsman.

Squad: Sean Williams (c), Sikandar Raza Butt, Regis Chakabva, Craig Ervine, Kevin Kasuza, Timycen Maruma, Prince Masvaure, Brian Mudzinganyama, Carl Mumba, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Ainsley Ndlovu, Victor Nyauchi, Brendan Taylor, Donald Tiripano, Charlton Tshuma

During the 1st Test of Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka at the Harare Sports Club last January 19 to 23, the match ended by Sri Lanka winning 10 wickets. The continuation of the Test series will be from January 27 to January 31 at the same venue. 

As of now, Sri Lanka (-666.67) is on the lead against Zimbabwe (+190). To keep you updated, visit Betwala’s page for more cricket odds.
