Plunkett replaces Finn in World T20 squad

England selectors announced that Yorkshire pace bowler Liam Plunkett will replace Steven Finn in the 15-man ICC World T20 squad.

Finn has a left calf strain and has been withdrawn from the squad for next month’s tournament in India.

England leave for India on 8 March and will face Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies and a qualifier in the group stages of the tournament.

The Independent

“The calf injury was a frustrating one because there wasn’t actually much wrong with me – I was back up and running after that one within a week of me doing it.”

By then though, he’d been removed from England’s World T20 squad. It’s apparent that Finn believes this decision was taken prematurely. “I actually bowled a flat out session after my calf injury the day that England played their first World T20 warm up match. I was fully fit. I was so frustrated I wasn’t there but you the decision was made quite quickly – it was out of my hands.”

“I told them I’d be fit” Finn said before his tone changed back to his more usual calm pragmatism. “I guess it just didn’t happen but it was very frustrating not to be there.
Feb 10 named in squad
Feb 26 injury
Feb 27 Plunkett replaces Finn
Mar 5 fit again
Mar 15 first match

Topley opened the bowling in the 1st match. Plunkett only played because Topley was expensive. I suppose that once Plunkett was named they didn't want to change the squad.
