Adam Milne has replaced the injured Pat Cummins in the Mumbai Indians(MI) squad for Vivo IPL 2018. Cummins was ruled out before the tournament was started. However, no official announcement has been made by IPL or the franchise, but Milne has joined the MI camp for training sessions.

Cummins was in good form in the Australia vs South Africa series with both ball and bat. Sadly Mumbai will miss his service. Milne has played IPL before for Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) last year. He played only five games picking up four wickets in IPL. In his international career he has picked up 21 wickets off his 19 matches with an impressive economy 7.38.

Mumbai has had problem with the fourth foreign player in the tournament so far. They went with Mitchell McClenaghan in the first game who was replaced by Ben Cutting in the second and now Akila Dananjaya gets that spot. Will Milne get a chance in the next matches? Mumbai are still to open their account in IPL.
