Indian paceman Ishant Sharma has been ruled out of the World Cup squad after failing to recover from knee injury paving way for Mohit Sharma to replace in the tournament.

Ishant missed the final Test in the series against Australia in early January because of the knee injury which he had sustained during the Boxing Day Test.

The International Cricket Council said that ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 has approved Mohit Sharma as a replacement player for Ishant Sharma in India’s squad for the tournament.

Mohit Sharma has played 12 ODIs and taken 10 wickets at an average of 40.50 with his right-arm medium pace since his debut against Zimbabwe in 2013.

The defending champions will get into the field against Pakistan in Adelaide next Sunday.
