Zimbabwe pace spearhead Tendai Chatara will play no further part in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier B 2022 in Bulawayo after he suffered a collarbone fracture on Tuesday.
The experienced bowler sustained the injury when he landed on his right shoulder while fielding during the group match against Jersey.
An orthopaedic specialist has recommended surgical intervention to deal with the right clavicle fracture.
Chatara is expected to be sidelined from action for at least two months.
Tony Munyonga has been called up as his replacement in Zimbabwe’s squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier B 2022.
Zimbabwe will face the United States of America in a Group A decider at Queens Sports Club on Thursday afternoon, although both teams are already through to the semi-finals scheduled for Friday.
The teams that make it into the final, set for Sunday, will clinch the two remaining spots at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 to be held in Australia in October.
