    Broad Replaces Lewis

    Fast bowler Stuart Broad is to replace seamer Jon Lewis in England's World Cup squad.

    Lewis - who has not played in the tournament proper - is set to return home to be with his wife, who is experiencing complications in pregnancy, an England team spokesman said.

    Broad, 20, has played five one-day internationals since making his England debut last year.

    The son of former England opening batsman Chris and the current Young Cricketer of the Year in England, Leicestershire's Broad was involved in England A's recent tour of Bangladesh.

    Broad has big wraps on him, but he's too young IMO, especially for a fast bowler who should take a bit more time to mature. We'll see how he goes, if indeed he does play any part in the tournament.

    That move should have been made before the group stages, the experience Broad could gain may prove to be priceless in the long run!

    Good luck to Lewis, wife and family.

    There are more important things than cricket and I hope all is well.

    Seconded.

    Good to see Broad given a chance, from what little of him I've seen he looks a good prospect.

    Seconded. Hope all is okay.

    Best of luck to Broad, has a lot of talent. Much prefer him to Saj, TBH.
