"Mumbai Indians have called up West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor to replace the injured Sri Lankan paceman Lasith Malinga for the remainder of the VIVO IPL 2016," the franchise said in a statement.

Taylor will be available for selection for MI subject to the completion of contractual paperwork formalities. The pacer has previously played in IPL and has represented Kings XI Punjab and the Pune franchise.

Mumbai Indians pace spearhead Malinga was ruled out after the medical team found him unfit because of a recurring knee injury.

He has played 98 matches in the IPL since joining the Mumbai Indians in 2009 season.
