Mumbai Indians have roped in Tamil Nadu fast bowler Sandeep Warrier to replace the injured Jasprit Bumrah for the IPL 2023. Delhi Capitals meanwhile, have picked Abhishek Porel as a replacement player for Rishabh Pant.
Warrier, who has played one T20I for India in 2021, has turned out in 68 T20s to date, picking 62 wickets. He also has five IPL outings for Kolkata Knight Riders. Delhi's acquisition is a 20-year-old keeper-batter who hasn't featured in the IPL before but comes with a full season of first class cricket for Bengal behind him.
MI are without Bumrah after the star pacer underwent surgery for his troublesome back and has been out of action since September 2022. Pant has been laid low following a horrific car accident he suffered in February this year.
