World T20: Yuvraj Singh ruled out with ankle injury

The host nation India have replaced injured Yuvraj Singh with middle-order batsman Manish Pandey.

Yuvraj, 34, who played a key role in India’s victory in the very first season of the ICC World T20 in 2007, suffered a minor tear to his left ankle during India’s six-wicket win over Australia in Mohali and has been sidelined for the rest of the competition. 

The middle-order batsman Manish Pandey has replaced Yuvraj Singh ahead of the semi-final match against the West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.

Pandey has played only four ODIs and a couple of T20 internationals for the country.
