Joseph, a late replacement for the injured New Zealand pacer Adam Milne, had a sensational debut in the T20 league against host Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 6 when he grabbed a league-best 6-12.

But his joy was shortlived as he conceded 53 runs in three overs against Rajasthan before getting injured badly by landing on his shoulder close to the boundary line. He was then forced to leave the field.

It has been learnt that Mumbai Indians has the option to ask for a replacement for the remainder of its engagements but it is unlikely to enforce that choice.
