London - England fast bowler Steven Finn has withdrawn from the squad for next month's ICC World Twenty20 with a leg injury and has been replaced by Liam Plunkett.

The England and Wales Cricket Board say Finn has a left calf strain and will miss the tournament in India.

Finn has had a number of recent injuries, being forced out of the tour of the United Arab Emirates in October 2015 with a stress injury to his left foot. Finn then missed the latter stages of the winter tour of South Africa with a side strain.

Plunkett takes his place in the 15-man squad as part of an England pace attack alongside David Willey, Reece Topley, Chris Jordan and Ben Stokes.
