Vinay ruled out Against Eng T20 Series

India's injury problems continue with the fast bowler Vinay Kumar being ruled out of the T20s against England due to a strained right calf muscle. He has been replaced by fast bowler Abhimanyu Mithun; he is Karnataka team.

Vinay is the 3rd India player to pull out of the 2-match series, starting on Thursday, due to injury.

The middle-order batsman Manoj Tiwary was quiet due to a side strain, before the Bowler Lakshmipathy Balaji was ruled unfit due to a stress injury to his right big toe. Vinay, who was brought in as Balaji's replacement, will be out of action for 2 weeks.

Mithun has played 4 Tests and 5 ODIs for India, his most recent form coming against West Indies in an ODI in Chennai late last year. He has taken 8 wickets in 4 Ranji Trophy matches this season.
