Mithun replaces Yadav in Ind squad
Friday 21 October 2011

The Board of Control for Cricket in India have replaced injured fast bowler Umesh Yadav with Karnataka pacer Abhimanyu Mithun, who has played two ODIs for India before.

Yadav was on Friday ruled out of the remaining two matches of the series against England due to a finger injury he sustained in the third ODI in Mohali.

India won the third ODI by five wickets last night to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

India take on England in the penultimate match of the series in Mumbai on Sunday. The final game will be played in Kolkata on October 25.

"Umesh Yadav sustained an injury during the Mohali ODI against England and has been ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series against England. Abhimanyu Mithun has been named his replacement. He will join the Indian team in Mumbai," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a release.

Yadav, the 23-year-old Vidharbha bowler, took four wickets for 153 runs in the three matches he played.
