Kyle Jarvis ruled out of Bangladesh tour
Zimbabwe fast bowler Kyle Jarvis has been ruled out of the Bangladesh tour due to a lower back injury. He suffered the injury during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Harare two weeks ago.
Zimbabwe have been hit with a massive blow ahead of the Bangladesh tour as fast bowler Kyle Jarvis has been ruled out due to a lower back injury. Jarvis also missed out the second Test against Sri Lanka after he suffered the injury during the first Test.
According to the MRI scan, the fast bowler will need at least six weeks to recover from the injury. He will have further scans to assess his recovery. He is likely to be able to train again in April ahead of the Ireland tour.
Zimbabwe will be playing one Test, three ODIs and two T20Is against the hosts Bangladesh. The first Test will start from February 22 in Dhaka. The visitors will be playing their first Test tour of Bangladesh since November 2018.
Jarvis was the pick of the bowler for Zimbabwe during that tour as he was the leading wicket-taker in that series, taking ten wickets at an average of 15.50, including a five-wicket haul in Dhaka.
Zimbabwe are yet to announced their squad for the tour. The series comes in just after playing the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. The hosts were thrashed by Sri Lanka in the first Test, but they came back strongly in the second one as it ended in a draw with Zimbabwe having the upper hand right throughout the Test.
