The Mumbai Indians confirmed on September 29 that all-rounder Arjun Tendulkar has been ruled out of the IPL 2021 UAE leg due to injury, with right-arm bowler Simarjeet Singh being added to their team as a replacement.

Arjun Tendulkar, who was signed for a base price of INR 20 lakh during the IPL auction earlier this year, has yet to play in the league. Tendulkar has played two T20s for Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and has two wickets to his record in his senior professional career. In January of this year, he made his debut against Haryana.

After Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya signed with Covid-19, he was recruited into the main squad, forcing no less than eight players deemed his close contact into isolation. Among the players mentioned above, only Sandeep Warrier was handed a T20I debut cap.

Simrajeet, 23, has 18 wickets in 15 T20 matches with an average and economy of 20.50 and 7.76, respectively, and 19 wickets in 19 List A games and 37 scalps in 10 First-Class matches. Despite being picked into the Mumbai Indians squad, the medium-pacer is unlikely to play in the event.

When the IPL 2021 season resumed in the United Arab Emirates, the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians could get back on track after three consecutive losses. They defeated Punjab Kings by six wickets on September 28 and are now in fifth place with five wins and six losses from 11 games. On October 2, 5, and 8, they play the Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals, and Sunrisers Hyderabad, respectively.
