Cape Town - India all-rounder Manish Pandey has replaced injured veteran Yuvraj Singh in India's squad for the remainder of the ICC World Twenty20, after the latter picked up an ankle injury in the group stage.

Yuvraj twisted his ankle while batting in the previous match against Australia in Mohali and has been ruled out of further participation in the tournament.

The 26-year-old Pandey has played two T20Is, which were against Zimbabwe in Harare in July last year. He has also played four ODIs. His replacement was approved by the ICC on Wednesday.

Any injury or illness-based replacement requires a written submission to the Event Technical Committee along with a diagnosis from a medical practitioner as to the extent of the injury or illness.

Once replaced, a player may not return to the squad save as an approved subsequent replacement for another injured or ill player.

India will take on the West Indies in their semi-final on Thursday.
