MI rope in Joseph for injured Milne

Mumbai Indians announced Alzarri Joseph, the Windies pacer, as the replacement for the injured Adam Milne, on Thursday (March 28). Milne, who was picked up by MI at the auction for INR 75 lakhs, was ruled out of the 2019 Indian Premier League due to a heel injury.

Joseph, who returned from a persistent back problem during the Test series versus England, has played just seven T20s, snaring 9 scalps. His best T20 figures of 4 for 41 came against St Lucia Zouks during the CPL 2016. Joseph, who will be taking part in his maiden IPL, has represented the Windies in nine Tests and 16 ODIs.
