The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that leg-spinner Cameron White will replace all-rounder Andrew Symonds in Australia's ICC World Twenty20 squad.

Symonds was sent home yesterday after breaking team rules and Cricket Australia (CA) were quick to nominate White, who will captain Australia A later this month against Pakistan, as his replacement.

The Event Technical Committee decided to grant Australia permission to make the change following Symonds' latest transgression.

Australia play the West Indies in their opening match tomorrow at The Oval.
