Indian medium pacer Praveen Kumar has joined Mumbai Indians in place of injured Zaheer Khan for IPL 7. Praveen wasn’t picked in this year’s IPL auctions, but joins the Mumbai squad after Zaheer Khan was ruled out of the rest of the IPL due to shoulder injury.
Praveen, fondly known as PK, last played for India in the lone T20 international against South Africa in 2012. He was part of Royal Challengers Bangalore for first three seasons, before Kings XI Punjab picked him up in 2011. He was the leader of Kings XI bowling attack but injuries resulted in many unwanted breaks for the swing bowler who went unsold in IPL 2014 Auctions.
