Injured Kulkarni Ruled Out Of ODIs
India's Dhawal Kulkarni has been ruled out of the three-match One-Day International series against the West Indies and replaced by Ranganath Vinay Kumar.
Kulkarni had been called up to the squad for the first time ahead of the three matches between 21st and 27th November but will now miss out due to a foot injury.
Vinay Kumar was originally left out of the squad following the 3-2 series defeat to Australia but is back after the selectors decided against any new call-ups.
With the relatively untried Mohit Sharma (two caps) and Jaydev Unadkat (six caps) also in the squad Vinay Kumar offers a more experienced option.
The Karnataka quick bowler has played 37 One-Day Internationals, taking 38 wickets with a best of four for 30 and an economy rate of 5.94.
India ODI squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ranganath Vinay Kumar, Amit Mishra, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Mohammad Shami, Mohit Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Jaydev Unadkat, Yuvraj Singh
