Mumbai Indians have been bolstered by the inclusion of Barbadian all rounder Dwayne Smith in the squad following the departure of fellow West Indian Dwayne Bravo who has returned home after the team's victory over Deccan Chargers in their IPL tie at Hyderabad on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Smith, who has played 10 Tests, 71 ODIs and five T20s, has joined the team, a spokesperson of the Reliance Industries-owned franchise said.

Earlier, South African pacer Andre Nel joined the squad ahead of the impending departure of Bravo who did a fine job with both bat and ball and played an important role in helping the team make a dramatic turnaround by winning six ties in a row after starting the tournament with four losses.
