Abhimanyu Mithun replaces Praveen for the Oz Tour

Abhimanyu Mithun, the Indian RCB fast bowler, has been named as Praveen Kumar's replacement in India's Test squad for their tour of Australia.



Abhimanyu Mithun, who is currently playing in the ODI series against the West Indies. In the 3rd ODI Mithun bowled well troubling the West Indies batsmen early on in the innings. After Praveen was ruled out of the Tests with a fractured rib, the
selectors had to add another seamer to the 17-man squad for Australia
and the place was expected to go to either one of Mithun, Vinay Kumar or
Irfan Pathan.

Mithun joins Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron and Ishant Sharma in India's pace
department for the Australia tour, with Zaheer Khan selected
provisionally, subject to him proving his fitness before the squad's
departure. Abhimanyu Mithun has a good Test record of nine wickets from the four Tests he has played so far.
