New Delhi:

India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has been ruled out of the tri-nation series in West Indies, starting this Friday (28th June), due to a hamstring injury. The Board of Control for Cricket in India said in a release on Monday that Mohammed Shami will join the team as replacement.

Irfan has not had a prolonged run in the national squad due to injuries and bad form. He was part of India's Champions Trophy side but did not feature in any of the matches.

His latest injury though will keep him away from the tournament in the Caribbeans which will also feature Sri Lanka as the third side.

Hosts West Indies play Sri Lanka in the opener while India's first match is on Sunday (30th June) against Dwyane Bravo's side.
