Afghanistan wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Shahzad

London, June 7: Afghanistan have been forced to make a change to their Cricket World Cup squad with the news that Mohammad Shahzad has been ruled out of the tournament due to a knee injury.

The wicketkeeper-batsman has been replaced by Ikram Ali Khil, after Afghanistan were granted permission to call up a fresh face following Shahzad's injury.

Shahzad – winner of 84 ODI caps for his country – made a duck in the opening defeat to Australia and contributed just seven in Tuesday's loss to Sri Lanka.

Teenager Ikram, meanwhile, has made only two ODI appearances, both against Ireland in March.
