Dernbach replaces injured Shahzad in England World Cup squad

Mumbai, Fri, 18 Mar 2011 ANI

Mumbai, Mar 18(ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday approved fast bowler Jade Dernbach as a replacement player for injured Ajmal Shahzad in England's 15-man World Cup squad.


The confirmation was conveyed to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on behalf of ICC's Event Technical Committee on Friday.


Shahzad had suffered a hamstring injury in a training session in the build-up to his side's Group B match against the West Indies in Chennai on Thursday.


Any injury-based replacement requires a written submission to the event technical committee along with a diagnosis from a medical practitioner as to the extent of the injury.


Once replaced, a player may not return to the squad save as an approved subsequent replacement for another injured player.


Shahzad becomes the fourth player to be replaced in England's squad - although Eoin Morgan subsequently returned as a replacement for injured Kevin Pietersen.


Dernbach, a right-arm medium-fast bowler with Surrey, was in England's original 30-man squad for the World Cup, but failed to make the final 15 and has been touring the Caribbean with England Lions.


As with all players in the tournament, the eligibility of a replacement player is subject to approval by the ICC before that player can be officially added to the squad.


The Event Technical Committee consists of David Richardson (ICC Chairman), Professor Ratnakar Shetty (Tournament Director), Campbell Jamieson (IDI representative), Anil Kumble (host nominee), David Lloyd (independent nomination) and Sanjay Manjrekar (independent nomination). (ANI)
