Shami ruled out of Sri Lanka ODIs
India fast bowler Mohammed Sami has been ruled out of the 5 ODI series against Sri Lanka with an injury.
Dhawal Kulkarni has been called up to the squad for the first 3 matches as a replacement.
The BCCI release announcing the change did not specify what Sami's injury was.
Kulkarni, who has played 1 ODI so far, was quite effective for West Zone in the Duleep Trophy quarter-final against East Zone.
He claimed match figures of 7 for 90 in the game. Before that, in the warm-up one-dayers against the West Indians, he had taken four wickets in two matches.
The Sri Lanka series begins on November 2nd, with the Cuttack ODI.
