Perth - India's in-form seamer Mohammed Shami will miss Saturday's Cricket World Cup clash against the United Arab Emirates in Perth due to a knee injury, a media release from the team said.

Shami has a mild left knee problem, the release said, adding that he was given a "an ultrasound guided injection" and asked to rest for the Pool B match.

The release did not say if the 24-year-old will be available for the next game against the West Indies in Perth on March 6.

The right-arm seamer has been India's most successful bowler in the tournament with figures of four for 35 against Pakistan and two for 30 against South Africa.

India, the defending champions, have won both games to head the Pool with four points.

Seamer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar or all-rounder Stuart Binny may replace Shami for the UAE match.
