Yuvraj Singh out of WT20 with ankle injury

WEB DESK: Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh has been replaced by Manish Pandey on Wednesday for the rest of WorldT20 due to ankle injury during a match against Australia on Sunday.

Yuvraj had landed awkwardly on his left ankle off the second ball he faced in Mohali and immediately felt pain and needed attention from the physio.

Although he batted for 18 balls and spent half an hour in the middle, his movement was restricted and he had trouble running between the wickets.

Pandey struck an ODI century last time he played for India, that 104 not out came in Australia in January and since then Pandey has not played any competitive cricket.

India will face West Indies in semi finals in Mumbai.
