Zimbabwe have been given permission by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to make a third change to their Cricket World Cup 2011 squad.

Tinashe Panyangara has replaced fellow fast bowler Ed Rainsford, who tore ankle ligaments during Zimbabwe's warm-up defeat to Ireland.

Tinotenda Mawoyo was Zimbabwe's first replacement after the withdrawal of Sean Ervine and he himself was then replaced by Terrence Duffin after he picked up an injury.

Panyangara has taken 26 wickets in 23 One-Day Internationals for Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe, who lost two warm-up matches to South Africa and Ireland respectively, begin their campaign against Australia on 21st February.

Zimbabwe World Cup squad: Elton Chigumbura (captain), Regis Chakabva, Charles Coventry, Graeme Cremer, Terrence Duffin, Craig Ervine, Greg Lamb, Shingirai Masakadza, Christopher Mpofu, Tinashe Panyangara, Ray Price, Tatenda Taibu, Brendan Taylor, Prosper Utseya, Sean Williams
