England seek another injury replacement

6:37 am on 10 March 2011

England have applied to have Chris Tremlett replace fellow fast bowler Stuart Broad who was ruled out of the remainder of the Cricket World cup with a side strain.

Tremlett has been with the squad throughout the competition as a stand-by player.

He is the second replacement player England have needed in the past two days, having summoned Eoin Morgan in place of the injured Kevin Pietersen.
