Quick bowler Praveen Kumar has been ruled out of the remainder of Mumbai Indians' Champions League Twenty20 campaign, after he sustained an injury to his right shoulder during the qualifier against Lahore Lions in Raipur.

Praveen bowled just three overs in that game and conceded 15 runs, as Mumbai went on to lose by six wickets. In the team's second game, against Southern Express, Praveen was left out, with legspinner Shreyas Gopal taking his place.

Praveen was signed by Mumbai during the course of the 2014 IPL as a replacement for the injured Zaheer Khan, but he only made three appearances, taking three wickets at 26.

Praveen will be replaced by 24-year-old Delhi seamer Pawan Suyal, who has played 15 first-class games. Suyal has already made two appearances for Mumbai. He made his IPL debut last year against Chennai Super Kings, and also played in the team's win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in May, where he picked up the wicket of Virat Kohli.
