Junaid Khan confirmed as replacement for Tanvir.

The ICC has confirmed the Event Technical Committee of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 has approved Junaid Khan as a replacement player for the injured Sohail Tanvir in the Pakistan squad for the tournament.

The confirmation was conveyed to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on behalf of the committee. Junaid will replace Tanvir, who is suffering from a knee injury. The injured player was declared unfit by his board and, as a result, the PCB chose to seek a replacement for the entire event.

Junaid, a 21-year-old left-arm pacer, has never before played international cricket.

Any injury-based replacement requires a written submission to the Event Technical Committee along with a diagnosis from a medical practitioner as to the extent of the injury. Once replaced, a player cannot return to the squad.

As with all players in the tournament, the eligibility of a replacement player is subject to approval by the ICC before that player can be officially added to the squad.
