Dubai: Delhi Capitals on Monday named Karnataka leggie Pravin Dubey as a replacement for veteran spinner Amit Mishra, who was ruled out of the IPL due to a fractured finger.

"Delhi Capitals today announced the signing of 27-year-old leg spinner Pravin Dubey as replacement for Amit Mishra, for the rest of the Dream11 Indian Premier League," a media release stated.

"The 37-year-old has undergone surgery, and is recovering at the moment," the release added.

Delhi, who are currently on top of the points table, will play their next match against Kings XI Punjab on Tuesday.
