ICC World Cup 2015
Adam Milne Ruled out of World Cup
Auckland: New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne has been ruled out of the remainder of the cricket World Cup after suffering pain in his heel and has been replaced in the squad by Matt Henry, the team said on Monday.
The 22-year-old had been suffering pain in his left heel for the last two weeks, coach Mike Hesson said.
While he was pain-free before the quarter-final against West Indies, it had 'flared up again'.
"It's to a point now where he wasn't able to bowl so he's unable to bowl and he's in a lot of pain when he bowls," Hesson told reporters at Eden Park.
"He's fine walking in a straight line but unfortunately when he bowls it's become increasingly uncomfortable to a point where he's unable to carry on."
Unlike Mills, McClenaghan bowled in the tournament when he replaced Milne in the final pool game against Bangladesh but he struggled for line and length and was expensive.
The 23-year-old Henry has been playing steady cricket in New Zealand's first-class competition.
