London: England have added wicketkeeper Sam Billings to their provisional squad for next year`s World Cup in place of the injured Craig Kieswetter.

Billings, 23, is a tidy keeper and innovative middle-order batsman who was in sparkling form for his county Kent last season.

Kieswetter, a member of England`s victorious World Twenty20 team in 2010, is suffering from problems with his vision after being hit by a ball while batting in a match in July.
