Ishant replaced Mohit in India ODI squad
India have lost the services of fast bowler Mohit Sharma for the rest of the one-day series against the West Indies, after he was withdrawn due to ‘bilateral shin pain’.
The paceman, who was the IPL’s top wicket taker this year, will be replaced by veteran Ishant Sharma, who was not part of the squad and has not played an ODI since January this year.
The BCCI said on their Twitter account: “News Alert – Ishant Sharma to replace injured Mohit in the ongoing Micromax Cup India vs West Indies ODI series 2014 #IndvWI”
Mohit bowled well in the first ODI, giving up just 24 runs in his final four overs at the death, but he failed to take a wicket. Ishant’s form in one-dayers in the past year has seen him take just eight wickets in seven games.
The West Indies lead the series one-nil after they won by 124 runs in Kochi. It is a five-game series.
