Mumbai Indians announced Pat Cummins Replacement

It has just been more than a week that the eleventh edition of IPL has begun. But the list of injuries has already been too long, the latest addition being Pat Cummins.

Pat Cummins goes out of IPL, replaced by Adam Milne

The defending and three times IPL champion Mumbai Indians are experiencing a bad season, losing all their three opening games.

Adding salt to the wound, the Australian pacer Pat Cummins has been ruled out from the rest of the tournament due to a back injury.

This is the third casualty, the two being Mitchell Starc and Kagiso Rabada, due to the gruelling test series between Australia and South Africa just before the IPL season began.

Australia’s physiotherapist, David Beakley, said, "Pat experienced some back soreness during the fourth Test in South Africa. Follow-up scans have confirmed that he has bone oedema in his vertebrae.”

“It is important that Pat has time off bowling, to prevent the injury becoming more serious and consequently we have made the decision to rule Pat out of the IPL.”

Mumbai Indians franchise decided to bring in New Zealand pacer Adam Milne as a replacement for the injured Cummins.

The 26-year-old has represented his country in 40 ODIs and 19 T20 International games. He had earlier represented RCB in the last two seasons where he played 5 matches with an economy of 9.8 and got 4 wickets.

Milne had a base price of 75 lakh INR in the auction, but he went unsold. He will now wear jersey number 20 for the Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai will now face RCB on April 17 at home where they will hope that things get turned around quickly after their three close losses.
