New Delhi: Dec 18,2012

Karnataka medium pacer R Vinay Kumar was ruled out of the Twenty20 series against England due to a strained right calf muscle on Tuesday, paving the way for state mate Abhimanyu Mithun‘s return to the Indian squad.

Kumar will be out of action for two weeks, BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.

The all-India senior selection committee will meet on Sunday, at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai, to pick the team for the T20 International and ODI series against Pakistan, the statement said.

India are scheduled to play England in two Twenty20 internationals in Pune on Thursday and in Mumbai on Saturday.
