New Delhi: The IPL Technical Committee has approved New Zealand's Mitchell McClenaghan as a replacement for Australian left-arm fast bowler Jason Behrendorff in the Mumbai Indians squad.
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.

After taking for a review, Indian captain Rohit Sharma was seen jokingly holding Dinesh Karthik's neck in the 1st T20I between India and Australia.
Rohit Sharma said that the partnership between KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav was important after they lost two quick wickets.
Suryakumar Yadav played a special 69-run knock to help India win the T20I series vs Australia but the pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel were quite expensive throughout.
