Mumbai - The Mumbai Indians' injury woes have deepened after opener Davy Jacobs was ruled out of the Champions League Twenty20 because of a hip injury.

According to the ESPNStar website, the South African wicketkeeper-batsman picked up the injury while batting in the nets on Sunday when the side was preparing for Monday's match against Trinidad and Tobago.

Ambati Rayudu had kept the wickets in place of Jacobs in that match, which the Mumbai Indians won by one wicket.

Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh said the team was looking for Jacob's replacement.

"I think our management is looking into the matter. We have to have another player in the side; we only have 13 players," Harbhajan said.

Mumbai Indians play their next match against the Cape Cobras in Bangalore on Friday.

Jacobs had emerged as the second-highest run-getter during the 2010 Champions League.

Later Jacobs expressed his disappointment on Twitter.

"(Sic) Last year's @clt20 changed my life.Very grateful,will always b a special tournament 4 me.So sad to leave now! But will be back #InGodWeTrust,"  read the Tweet.
