England allrounder Luke Wright will miss the World Twenty20 with a side strain and Craig Kieswetter will replace him in the side, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Saturday.
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 injury.
"The Event Technical Committee ... has approved Craig Kieswetter as a replacement player for Luke Wright in the England men's squad," the ICC said in a statement.
Like Wright, South Africa-born Kieswetter was part of England's 2010 World Twenty20 winning side.
