New Delhi: Karnataka captain Vinay Kumar replaced paceman L Balaji in the Indian Twenty20 squad for the two matches against England. Balaji suffered a foot injury which will keep him out of the matches.
“L Balaji has suffered a stress injury to his right big toe, and has been ruled out of the T20 International series against England, as a result. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked R Vinay Kumar as his replacement in the Indian team,” Sanjay Jagdale, BCCI secretary in a statement.
Vinay Kumar has been in good wicket-taking form in the domestic circuit. The first T20 will be played on December 20 in Pune and the second in Mumbai on Dec. 22.
