ZIMBABWE batsman Vusi Sibanda suffered an injury to his right ankle during a warm-up session on Friday, but is likely to recover in time for the upcoming home series against India according to the coach Dav Whatmore.

The injury occurred at the Harare Sports Club during training when a back-pedaling Sibanda rolled over his right ankle after accidentally stepping on team analyst Stanley Chioza's foot.

Sibanda was immediately taken for an x-ray scan and later given a crutch, but Whatmore played down the incident as a "minor accident" and said that the player "should be okay in a week".

"I took Vusi for an x-ray, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging scans and the results are expected this afternoon," Anesu Mupotaringa, the team physiotherapist, said.

"He is currently in pain and I have given him a crutch to avoid pressure on the ankle. I also gave him medication to help with the pain and swelling, and he will receive treatment twice daily to speed up recovery with the hope of him being fit for the India tour."

Sibanda has played 154 international matches for Zimbabwe since making his debut in 2003.

He was left out of the 2015 World Cup squad, but returned to the side for Zimbabwe's historic tour of Pakistan last month.

Zimbabwe will host India for three ODIs and two Twenty20 internationals, starting July 10 in Harare.
