Injured Mills out of NZ World Cup squad

Colombo: Injured paceman Kyle Mills has been ruled out of New Zealand's squad for the World Cup and been replaced by Andy McKay.

The strike bowler strained his left thigh during a group match against Canada and has missed New Zealand's last two matches against Sri Lanka and South Africa.

Mills was fined for his part in an altercation with South Africa batsman Faf du Plessis when he took drinks onto the field at the fall of a wicket during New Zealand's upset quarterfinal win at Dhaka on Friday night.
