New Delhi: England has called fast bowler Jade Dernbach into its squad as injury cover for Ajmal Shahzad, who was ruled out hours before the dramatic win over West Indies which gave the English a World Cup lifeline.

The Surrey paceman was approved by the International Cricket Council as a replacement on Friday. England didn't immediately move to replace Shahzad, who has an injured hamstring, because a loss to the West Indies on Thursday would have resulted in a first-round exit from the touranment.

England has seven points from six games and its progress to the quarterfinals depends on the outcome of weekend Group B matches.
