Auckland: Ahead of their cricket World Cup semi-final match against South Africa here on Tuesday, New Zealand added fast bowler Matt Henry to the squad as a replacement for injured pacer Adam Milne.

The 22-year-old Milne felt discomfort in his left heel following the quarter-final encounter against the West Indies on Saturday and subsequently underwent an MRI scan on Sunday afternoon.

The results showed significant swelling around the region and he will not be fit to play any further part in the tournament, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed on Monday.

Henry, the 23-year-old Christchurch-born fast bowler, has played eight one-day internationals (ODI) and two Twenty20 internationals for New Zealand.

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.
