Mumbai Indians have signed West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Smith, who played for them in the 2008 season, to replace an injured Mitchell Johnson after Cricket Australia ruled the fast bowler out of IPL 2012.

Smith is due to join the team on May 3.

Johnson failed to recover in time from surgery on his big toe, which he injured while batting in the second Test against South Africa at Wanderers last November.

Mumbai Indians have had a few injury problems already this season.

Sachin Tendulkar missed four games with an injured finger, while Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga flew home for treatment for a sore back and missed three matches.

Mumbai Indians are third in the points table behind Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders.

They have won five matches and lost four this season.
