India pace bowler Dhawal Kulkarni has been called up as a replacement for fellow seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar after the latter injured his ankle during a training session.

Kumar was initially ruled out of the first two Tests against Australia, but since he is unlikely to be available for the Boxing Day Test as well, the national selectors decided to call up Kulkarni.

Many pundits and former players believe calling up Kulkarni isĀ an interesting decision, especially since he has yet to make his Test debut.
