Young chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav has earned his maiden India Test call up after veteran leg spinner Amit Mishra was ruled out of the upcoming India vs Bangladesh Test because of a knee injury he sustained during the T20 series against England.

Kuldeep, who plays for UP in domestic circuit, has been in the selection radar for a couple of seasons having troubled a lot of batsmen with his 'wrong one' or left armer's googly.     

The young spinner had earlier been selected in the ODI squad but is yet to make his debut for the Indian cricket team. For Mishra, this comes as a setback as he needs to undergo more medical examination to determine the extent of his injury.

Kuldeep came into prominence in longer version during Duleep Trophy day night matches. He has had a steady Ranji Trophy even though UP had a horrible season. The young bowler now has 81 wickets in 22 matches.
