Allrounder Abhishek Nayar has replaced Dhawal Kulkarni in the Mumbai Indians squad for the ongoing Champions League Twenty20 in South Africa. Kulkarni injured his back during training the day before the tournament started.
Nayar has been a steady performer for Mumbai during the IPL, scoring 457 runs in 30 games at a strike rate of 134.01 and also picking up five wickets at an average of 30.40. However, he played only three matches in the last IPL, having spent most of the tournament recuperating from a wrist injury. He last played in the BCCI Corporate Trophy earlier this month, turning out for Bharat Petroleum.
Mumbai play their next game on September 14 against South Australia in Durban. It is not clear whether Nayar would be available for the match.
