Both Australia and New Zealand have been permitted to replace injured players Nathan Bracken and Jacob Oram.


ICC's technical committee confirmed Australia could replace Bracken with fellow New South Wales seamer Doug Bollinger, while the Black Caps have brought James Franklin in for all-rounder Oram.


Bracken was ruled out of the tournament due to a long-term knee problem while Oram strained his left hamstring to allow Franklin the chance to get in the Kiwi side.


Franklin could make his return in New Zealand's second game of the tournament against Sri Lanka on Sunday.


The Black Caps lost their opener to tournament hosts South Africa yesterday by five wickets.
