Hobart, Australia: Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura has a left leg injury and won't play in his team's next Cricket World Cup match against Ireland at Bellerive Oval on Saturday.

Team officials said Chigumbura sustained a muscle tear in his quadriceps while fielding in Zimbabwe's 20-run loss to Pakistan in Brisbane last Sunday.

Chigumbura tripped while attempting a diving stop as he attempted to cut off a boundary in the outfield.

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.
