Azhar allowed as Replacement of Razzaq


Pakistan have been allowed to replace injured all-rounder Abdul Razzaq with Azhar Mahmood for this month’s World Cup in the West Indies.

According to an International Cricket Council (ICC) media release, the World Cup Technical Committee approved Azhar as a replacement player in Pakistan’s squad for the tournament.

The confirmation was conveyed to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in an email from David Richardson, the ICC General Manager - Cricket and the Chairman of the tournament Technical Committee, on Thursday.

Azhar, also an experienced all-rounder, came in for Razzaq after the latter was advised to take at least three weeks rest after injuring his knee during a training session in Lahore earlier this week.

He is the second replacement player to be called up for the tournament. Australia’s Stuart Clark, who replaced Brett Lee, was the first man to be drafted in by any of the 16 teams taking part following the announcements of the final squads of 15 players.

The Technical Committee of the ICC Cricket World Cup consists of David Richardson (Chairman, ICC representative), Campbell Jamieson (IDI representative), former international captains Michael Atherton and Rameez Raja (both independent nominations), Chris Dehring (Managing Director and CEO of the ICC CWC 2007) and Michael Hall (ICC CWC 2007 Cricket Operations Director).
