Royal Challengers Bangalore’s West Indian recruit, Samuel Badree, has been ruled out of Indian Premier League with an injury, and replaced by Tabraiz Shamsi of South Africa.

The Windies legspinner had injured himself during the World Twenty20 final on April 3 and has not played a game since then.

He will be replaced by chinaman bowler Tabraiz Shamsi, who plays for South African franchise Titans.

Shamsi, 26, previously played in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after catching the eye of the touring West Indies in South Africa in 2014-15.

He enjoyed reasonable success at the CPL, claiming 11 wickets in seven games at an average of 13.27 for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in 2015.
