Tremlett called up

LONDON: Chris Tremlett has been called up to England's World Cup squad as a travelling reserve following a spate of injuries in the bowling attack.

Tremlett has recently recovered from a side strain and is in line to deputise for any of the teammates who also suffered injuries during the seven-match One-Day International series in Australia, which England lost 6-1.

National Selector Geoff Miller said: “Whilst the injured bowlers in the 15-man squad are all progressing well, the selectors have decided it would be prudent to have an additional player on hand who is acclimatised in case we need to apply to the Event Technical Committee for a replacement due to injury.”

Yorkshire pacemen Tim Bresnan and Ajmal Shahzad were two of the bowlers to depart the ODI series early after suffering respective calf and hamstring injuries.

Tremlett, who flew home alongside Shahzad but has made a sufficiently swift recovery, would be an ideal replacement should any of that pair or Stuart Broad — nearing full fitness after an abdominal muscle injury ended his tour following the second Ashes Test — not make it. — AFP
