forced to withdraw from the tournament after sustaining a broken left index finger during England's match against South Africa on Saturday. 

The decision to replace a player in the squad necessitates the endorsement of the Event Technical Committee.

The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 is composed of notable figures in the cricketing world.

The committee is chaired by Wasim Khan, who also serves as the ICC General Manager - Cricket. Chris Tetley, the ICC Head of Events, plays a pivotal role alongside Hemang Amin, the Acting CEO of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Gaurav Saxena, General Manager - Operations at BCCI, and Independent Representatives Russel Arnold and Simon Doull.

Carse has featured in 12 ODIs for England

Brydon Carse, who boasts experience in 12 One Day Internationals (ODIs), has been named as Topley's successor, with the hope that he will provide a valuable addition to the England team as they continue their World Cup campaign.

Carse is expected to join the England team in Bangalore ahead of their upcoming match against Sri Lanka on Thursday. However, due to his recent lack of competitive play – having not participated in a match for four weeks – it is unlikely that he will be considered for the playing XI.

Carse had an opportunity to showcase his skills in the recent T20I series and featured in one of England's four ODIs against New Zealand last month. He also represented England's second-string side in a match against Ireland.

At the age of 28, Carse, originally born in South Africa, holds a UK passport and represents Durham and Northern Superchargers in domestic cricket. Known for his tall and powerful seam bowling, he also possesses the ability to contribute with the bat in the lower order. To date, he has earned 12 ODI caps and three T20I caps since making his debut in 2021.

The inclusion of Brydon Carse into the England squad showcases the adaptability and resilience of teams as they strive for success in this prestigious cricketing event.

The addition of Brydon Carse to the England squad further adds to the intrigue and excitement of this global cricketing extravaganza.
