Behrendorff, who is suffering from a back problem, has been ruled out of this edition of the Indian Premier League.

"In accordance with the Player Regulations, the Mumbai Indians were allowed to choose a replacement from the Registered and Available Player Pool (RAPP)," an IPL media release said.

The Mumbai Indians subsequently picked McClenaghan at his base price of INR one crore.

McClenaghan was a part of the Mumbai Indians squad since 2015, but remained unsold in the auctions for IPL 2018.

After the auctions in January, he had sent out a tweet thanking the Mumbai Indians team and Rohit Sharma for the time he spent with the team.
