IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Franklin called up to replace Oram


franklinJames Franklin, the New Zealand left-arm medium-fast bowler, has been called up as a replacement for the injured Jacob Oram at the ICC Champions Trophy. Franklin, who was playing for Gloucestershire against Kent in Bristol, will leave the match halfway to head to South Africa.

Oram pulled his hamstring during training and missed New Zealand’s opening game of the tournament along with Ian Butler, who caught a stomach bug.

In seven Friends Provident Trophy matches for Gloucestershire this season, Franklin has taken 11 wickets at 21.90 and scored 224 runs at a strike-rate of 82.05. In the ongoing County Championship match, Franklin ended day two unbeaten on 104 after taking 5 for 30 to restrict Kent to 264.

New Zealand lost to South Africa by five wickets on Thursday.
