Englands Luke Wright ruled out of World Twenty20

23-Mar-2014 :

Mirpur: England all-rounder Luke Wright was ruled out of the World Twenty20 with a side strain on Saturday, while recuperating Australian James Faulkner will miss Sunday’s super 10 match against Pakistan.

Barely hours before the already-depleted English side begin their Super 10 campaign against New Zealand in Chittagong, 29-year-old Wright joined Joe Root and Ben Stokes in being forced out of the former winners’ squad with an injury.

“The Event Technical Committee...has approved Craig Kieswetter as a replacement player for Luke Wright in the England men’s squad, the International Cricket Council said in a statement.

Like Wright, South Africa-born Kieswetter was part of England’s 2010 World Twenty20 winning side.
