England all-rounder Luke Wright has been ruled out of the World Twenty20 with a side strain.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter has been drafted in as the 29-year-old's replacement.

Wright had been struggling with the injury for a while, but the conformation of his unavailability came just hours before England's first game of the tournament.

England, who are 18-1 longshots to win the competition, begin their challenge by taking on New Zealand in the Super 10 stage in Chittagong later today.
