Wellington: New Zealand's injury-hit touring team will rotate bowlers for the three-match One-day series against Zimbabwe starting in Harare on Wednesday, New Zealand Cricket said on Tuesday. All-rounder Chris Cairns, with a knee problem, and left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori, with a back problem, have already dropped out of the series.

Two other bowlers still in the squad, pace pair Dion Nash and Geoff Allott, are carrying back injuries that have limited their appearances in the past year.''We have to look at rotating our scarce bowling resources and this means Nash and Allott are unlikely to play in all three One-day Internationals against Zimbabwe,'' New Zealand coach David Trist said in a statement issued in New Zealand.
