Mumbai Indians have signed up left-arm pacer Beuran Hendricks as replacement for the injured Alzarri Joseph for the rest of the Indian Premier League 2019. The South African pacer has previously been a part of King XI Punjab’s set-up in IPL.
Joseph sustained an injury on his right arm during MI’s game against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede stadium on April 13. The West Indian pacer, who came in as a replacement for the injured Adam Milne, hurt his right arm while trying to stop a boundary hit by Shreyas Gopal in the 19th over of RR’s innings. The tall fast bowler had earlier taken his career best T20 figures of 6 for 12 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Hendricks, the 28-year-old, has played 64 T20s, picking up 89 scalps at an average of just over 20. He has also played two ODIs and 10 T20Is for South Africa
MI lock horns against Chennai Super Kings in their next IPL 2019 game in Chennai on April 26.
