ICC approves Shirzad as Alam's replacement in Afghanistan squad

The ICC said Alam, who had taken four wickets in three matches during the tournament, had been replaced under "under exceptional circumstances" without providing details.

Shirzad has played only one ODI in his career but is in line to feature in Afghanistan's remaining two games against Pakistan on Saturday and West Indies on July 4.
