Davy Jacobs ruled out of CLT20
Tuesday 27 September 2011

Mumbai Indians’ injury ravaged CLT20 campaign continues as wicketkeeper-batsman Davy Jacobs was ruled out of the competition because of a hip injury.

The South African picked up the injury while batting in the nets on Sunday when the side was preparing for Monday's match against Trinidad and Tobago.

Ambati Rayudu had kept the wickets in place of Jacobs in that match, which MI won by a narrow-margin of one wicket.

Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh said the team was looking for Jacob's replacement.

"I think our management is looking into the matter. We have to have another player in the side; we only have 13 players," Harbhajan said.

Mumbai Indians play their next match against Cape Cobras on Friday.

Harbhajan joked that if players continued to get injured like this, they might have to rope in their support staff, full of former international players, to field a playing XI.

"Dhoni had a very tough time in England when the injury list was increasing, and we finished the tour with ten players (injured); it gets very difficult for any captain. Dhoni was fighting alone there; hopefully, it's not my turn now.

"If there are one or two more injuries, we don't know whether we will be able to put up a show. Might have to bring Jonty Rhodes in then, (Shaun) Pollock also and Robin Singh as well," he said.

Jacobs had emerged as second highest run-getter during the 2010 Champions League.
