New Zealand have confirmed that Ian Butler will replace the injured Trent Boult in their squad for the ICC Champions Trophy.

The Kiwis ruled Boult out of the one-day internationals with England on Thursday and named fellow seamer Butler in his place for the three-match series.

Boult tore a muscle in his side in the Headingley Test last weekend, and New Zealand knew he would not be fit for their Champions Trophy campaign either.

But they could not confirm that fact until the International Cricket Council's technical committee officially approved Butler as a tournament replacement.
