Khurram Chohan will not play a part in the ongoing tournament any more.

The ICC has confirmed that the Event Technical Committee of the ICC World Twenty 20 Qualifier 2015 has approved Ahmad Awais as a replacement player for Khurram Chohan in Canada’s squad for the tournament.

Chohan has an acute rectus femoris tear and he will not be fit to play any further part in the tournament.

Any injury or illness-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 or illness. Once replaced, a player may not return to the squad save as an approved subsequent replacement for another injured or ill player.

The Event Technical Committee of the ICC World Twenty 20 Qualifier 2015 is Geoff Allardice (ICC General Manager – Cricket, Chairman), Chris Tetley (ICC Head of Events), Warren Deutrom (Chief Executive, Cricket Ireland / Co-Tournament Director), Euan McIntyre (Cricket Scotland / Co-Tournament Director), Pommie Mbangwa and Dominic Cork (independent nominees).

Canada lost its opening game to Kenya on Friday and will next face Oman in Group B of the ICC World Twenty 20 Qualifier 2015 at Stirling on Monday.
