Dwayne Smith joins Mumbai Indians
May 19, 2008 20:19 IST
Mumbai Indians have been bolstered by the inclusion of Barbadian all-rounder Dwayne Smith in the squad following the departure of fellow-West Indian Dwayne Bravo [Images], who has returned home after the team's victory over Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League match in Hyderabad on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Smith has played 10 Tests, 71 ODIs and five T20s.
Earlier, South African pacer Andre Nel [Images] joined the squad ahead of the impending departure of Bravo, who did a fine job with both bat and ball. He played an important role in helping the team make a dramatic turnaround, winning six matches in a row after starting the tournament with four losses.
