England spinner Danielle Hazell has been ruled out of the rest of the Women’s World Twenty20 with a calf muscle strain.

The 27-year-old, injured in training on Monday, will be replaced in the squad by fellow off-spinner Laura Marsh.

Hazell’s place in the side for Tuesday’s game with India went to left-arm spinner Rebecca Grundy.

“This is obviously very disappointing news for Danielle,” said England head coach Mark Robinson.

“She was an important component of the attack, especially given her excellent current form and the conditions here in India, but we are fortunate to have such a talented and experienced replacement in Laura.”

Durham-born Hazell is currently at number two in the International Cricket Council’s rankings
