Mumbai Indians (MI) on Thursday signed West Indies pacer Alzarri Shaheim Joseph on the replacement of injured Adam Milne.

Adam was ruled out of the ongoing season of Indian Premier League due to a heel injury.

The pacer will join the Mumbai squad today at the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in M. Chinnaswamy stadium.

Joseph’s arrival will help skipper Rohit Sharma to take on RCB and claimed their first win in the league. His arrival will also boost Sri Lanka veteran Lasith Malinga, who was initially supposed to miss the first six matches of the tournament due to ICC World Cup 2019 preparations.

Coincidentally, he also dismissed a young Ishan Kishan at the World Cup, with whom he will be sharing the dressing room now.
