Mumbai Indians have signed left-arm spinner Kumar Kartikeya as a replacement for the injured Arshad Khan for the rest of IPL 2022. Arshad, the uncapped left-arm seamer, was yet to feature in a game this season.
Kartikeya has played eight T20s for Madhya Pradesh, taking nine wickets. At the 2021-22 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he was the joint second-highest wicket-taker for his side with five wickets in as many games at an economy rate of 5.05.
The 24-year-old has also played nine first-class games and 19 List A matches, picking up 35 and 18 wickets in them respectively.
Kartikeya joins the Mumbai squad for the price of INR 20 lakh (approx. USD 26,000). M Ashwin, Mayank Markande and Fabian Allen are the other spin-bowling options Mumbai have at their disposal.
With eight successive defeats since the start of the season, Mumbai are all but out of the race for the playoffs. Their next match is on Saturday, against Rajasthan Royals at the DY Patil Stadium.
