England applies for Tremlett as replacement for Broad

Tremlett, who has been with the World Cup party throughout the competition as a stand-by player, was the obvious man to come in for Broad as a like-for-like replacement, an ECB statement said.

Broad discovered yesterday that his side strain was serious enough to send him back to the UK and end his tournament.

He left his team-mates behind in Chittagong this afternoon, and a few hours later the ECB confirmed its application to the International Cricket Council's event technical committee for Tremlett to come in as a seam-bowling reinforcement.

Tremlett is the second replacement player England have needed in the past two days, having summoned Eoin Morgan in place of the injured Kevin Pietersen on Monday.
Middle-order batsman Morgan joined the squad for practice at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here today, in preparation for Friday's Group B fixture against Bangladesh at the same venue
